EGELSTON TOWNSHIP, Mich. — An anonymous buyer has purchased a western Michigan pedestrian bridge for $1.
But why would the government sell a perfectly good bridge for a buck?
Egelston Township used the bridge to give students safe passage to an elementary school. The school no longer is used for elementary students.
Egelston Township Supervisor Mike Thompson … was worried about the safety of the seldom-used, 39-year-old structure.
Can you imagine how much it would cost the township to think about, debate, vote, put to bid and then PAY union workers to tear down that bridge? Hell, itta be 10 years before that sucker finally came down; due to torrential rain or some other such nonsense.
Government should guide, market should do!
