Bridge repairs could take year


Simmons indicated road signs have been installed at strategic points near Panzier Lane to warn motorists of detours, and he is encouraging motorists to use Riddle Lane, rather than township roads during the closure.

Simmons noted the reconstruction project is 80 percent federally funded with a 20 percent local match, or approximately $120,000. Simmons has approximately $300,000 in the Emergency Bridge Fund to date, he reported.

In other business, the Board formally approved the special committee on courthouse repairs. Named to the committee are board members Randy Edwards as chairman, Tommy Hayes, James Malone and Jeremy Hall.
