Nappanee board accepts appraisals on properties


The engineer also took measurements on the currently closed Summit Street Bridge leading into Stauffer Park to determine the load limit. Warren said the limit is anything below 3 tons and the bridge is closed to vehicular traffic.

Now officials will need to determine whether the bridge can be repaired or if it needs to be replaced. If they have to replace the bridge, the estimated cost would be approximately $100,000.

While the bridge is closed there is only one way in and out of the park. 			

In other business, board members:

• Heard crews will be working in the city next week checking for water leaks around hydrants, etc.
