How do I share GAL between Exchange Servers

I support 3 different domains for the city using 3 different Exchange Servers, all running Exchange 2003.  The issue right now is communication from the different networks.  Everytime we hire a new employee, I have to create a contact email address on all 3 domains (Town Hall, Police Department, & Public Works Facility) so they can all see the new employee in their respective GAL through Outlook.

Is it possible to build a trust to where my GAL from each Exchange Server will show up in all 3 domains?  I want a user from any specific department to be able to open the address book and view the GAL of the other 2 department Exchange Servers.  I'm very tired of manually entering in the contacts multiple times, as well as removing old ones.

You can use a third party tool like GALSync:

It looks like the galsync would accomplish what I want but unfortunately we don't have $2,000 in the budget to implement on this.  I'm hoping there is a free utility or work around.   Any other suggestions?
