Pump up those tires Ronnie. Your bridge will be coming soon! All $141,500 of it!

Doesn’t ANYONE know how to negotiate a contract in this city? Any local builder could do it for 1/3 the cost. Oops. forgot – IT’S GOVERNMENT MONEY!

Me and 2 bad hombre’s would knock this out in a weekend. 5K material, pay us 5K cash, burritos and jaritos for lunch and a little tequila when we finish up.

That is easily 4 times what that bridge should cost! Just like clacks corner rip off, we clearly have no one with common sense in charge of our money.

Has there been any consideration for limiting the effort to ‘line item 2’?

Material cost to replace this bridge $5,000. Resonable cost to demo and rebuild $30,000.

Who specifically makes these desicions at the city? Name/department?

How many people use this bridge? If there are 100 users a week, that’s 5,200 crossings a year. If you assume the $150,000 bridge will last 20 years, the annual cost is $7,500. That’s $1.40 per crossing! The true cost is likely higher, when you account for the time value of money and any future repairs/inspections. There has to be a better way to spend taxpayer dollars!

I’m in the wrong business. The right business is apparently selling anything John Ernst.

“ the occasional golf cart” ?! I guess golf cart owners don’t realize or care that 1). It is still ILLEGAL to drive a golf cart on city streets and 2. This is a PEDESTRIAN bridge. Engineering for a 600-pound cart + 2 or more adults and the kiddies and the dog? I’m surprised that it’s only a 4-inch drop.

The bridge isn’t necessary to begin with. If a person cannot walk around then they have no business walking to begin with. It may sever up to 10 lazy people a month.

$141,500 for a partial bridge repair ? This is the same contractor that has done work at MC and did the work at Clack’s Corner that was last reported to be almost $200,000 for a small lot?
Mr. Mayor, who is running this asylum?

Why Gregory, that would be your mayor and city council that are running the asylum commonly known as Brookhaven.
