City should keep bridge open

    My name is Carter Mason from Boy Scout Troop 477.  I was in the (Crawford County) Commissioner's Meeting on August 20, 2019, and the Third Street Bridge was discussed. I am writing to complete another requirement of my communications merit badge, which is a letter to the editor of my local paper.  

    I would like to give you my opinion on the bridge located on Third Street. I think the city should do the necessary repairs to keep the bridge open for pedestrian use. The Sheriff's Department needs to have the bridge there to transport inmates from the jail to the courthouse and back to the jail. To take down the current bridge and build a new pedestrian bridge would cost more money for the city. The current bridge is already there and can continue to be used for a walkway and save the city money.  
    Thank you,
