County calls special meeting to move Bunker Mill Bridge project along
With a grant application deadline of 4:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 10, the Friends of Bunker Mill Bridge (FBMB) are trying to speed up the process of obtaining the bridge from Washington County in time to meet the grant deadline. The county board of supervisors is trying to help the group by holding a special meeting at 9 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 10.
Supervisor Bob Yoder added a sense of urgency to the bridge project. He said the time to work on the bridge is now.
Suzanne Micheau, managing director of FBMB, said that work on the bridge needs to begin soon to prevent further damage to the bridge.
Washington County Attorney Larry Brock and County Engineer Jacob Thorius were in on the discussion.
See Wednesday’ Washington Evening Journal for more details on the project.
The supervisors tabled a decision on a proposed schedule of fees. They received quarterly reports from the county treasurer, county recorder and county auditor.
Supervisor Jack Seward said that progress continues to be made on the Richmond and Rubio sewer projects, but that he had nothing new to report today.
County resident Ken Miller spoke to the supervisors today on behalf of all-terrain vehicle (ATV) enthusiasts about passing an ordinance that would allow ATV owners to ride on gravel roads for recreational purposes. He presented arguments for and against such an ordinance.
The supervisors said they would like a couple of weeks to look over the information provided. They will discuss the request during the Oct. 22 board meeting.
