Highway (HAY)

Such boards shall have power by a vote of two-thirds of all the members elected to authorize an alteration, reduction or change of the rates of toll charged or received by any turnpike, plank or gravel road, or other toll road within such county, or by any bridge company or ferry within such county, or, if within more than one county, then by joint action with the supervisors of such counties, provided such alteration shall be asked for by the directors, trustees or owners of such road, bridge or ferry; but that no increase of toll shall be so authorized unless notice of such proposed increase shall have been published once each week for three successive weeks in a newspaper having general circulation in each town in which such road or bridge is located or in which such ferry is operated, commencing at least thirty days prior to the date of such authorization; and any alteration in rates of toll authorized by any board of supervisors may be changed or modified by any subsequent board, on their own motion, by a like vote of two-thirds of all the members elected to such board; but nothing herein contained shall affect or abridge the powers of any city.
