      Golden Gate Bridge district delays vote on electronic toll system

      By Will Reisman

      The fate of the Golden Gate Bridge's toll collectors will remain unknown for two more weeks.

      The Golden Gate Bridge District, which is facing a five-year shortfall of $89 million, has proposed eliminating its toll-collection staff in favor of an all-electronic system, a development that will save the agency $16 million over 10 years.

      The bridge district's Finance Committee was supposed to take action on the proposal today. However, the committee opted to delay the vote for two weeks to gather more information.
