Weeds grow as Swing Bridge sits
What should Douglas do about the Swing Bridge property? There is only so much it can do, city manager Bill LeFevere told council Monday.
“The land is privately owned,” said LeFevere of the 5-acre lot northwest of the Blue Star Bridge, home to condominiums conspicuous, of late, for their incompletion.
“We were bonded for the infrastructure (sewer, water and Washington Street site). They’re complete,” he added. “So is the public boardwalk. But not the buildings.”
“I don’t see any signs of activity there,” said councilman Greg Harvath.
“Weeds are growing through the boardwalk. It’s covered with goose poop,” said peer Martha Hoexter.
