A Bridge inspection report was presented by Chris Brozik from Civil Design. Bridge inspection is required by the state and now requiring review to council the report. Nothing drastically has changed from the last inspection; the bridge is in rough shape and deteriorating. There are plans for future replacements. It will continue to be inspected yearly. Longhenry questioned the estimated life of the structure. Based on the inspection if the deterioration progresses like it has Brozik estimates the life of the structure  should be at least 5 more years, deteriorating rate is hard to determine.
