I have to admit, this is one of your most intelligent posts.
First of all, I have asked why the existing cannot be repaired at a much lower cost than replacing it, and why an Engineer was not hired to make that assessment, but never received an answer from anyone. The money the City spent on the design process would have been more than enough to pay for it.
Second, the lineal foot price difference you have figured out deserves an honest explanation, and if the figure is right based on the “selected design”, or “eye appeal” mandate, than the City needs to have an Engineer design an alternate bridge, which does one thing: It gets you over the waterway. I don’t care what a bridge looks like as long as its functional, and does not cost almost twice as much as the S.S. Jolly Bridge.
This sounds like the same “Deal” brought upon “We the Tax Paying People” by our “Politicos” at the time when the Veterans Park was purchased from a local developer for over three times the square foot price of comparable properties. This fact was based on a number of appraisals that were performed at the time, and only the highest one was considered.
