Julie Bowers with the North Skunk River Green Belt Association which helps save historic bridges presented a lease proposal and a request of purchase for Bunker Mill Bridge on behalf of the Friends of the Bunker Mill Bridge. The non-profit group was developed last week and approached the Washington County Board of Supervisors regarding obtaining the bridge yesterday.

She explained that she would like to have an engineer and ironworker familiar with historic bridges to inspect Bunker Mill Bridge in early October.

The supervisors decided to table the item so that the county attorney and county engineer could review the proposals.
