Ferry company rejects state contract

Cave In Rock Ferry has rejected the offer of Kentucky's two-year contract to operate the service across the Ohio River. 

The current contract expires at the end of June. Negotiations for the last three 2-year contracts have gone until the 11th hour or later before a pact has been signed.

The state, which in cooperation with Illinois reimburses the ferry operator for expenses, has offered a 13-percent revenue bump for the coming contract period.

We will have full details in next week's Crittenden Press.
