At the recent MRC meeting that took place on April 18, the council of mayors resolved to seek a more equitable solution to repairs on a bridge over the Black River in Waltham.
Waltham Mayor David Rochon, reached after the meeting, explained that the municipality has been footing the bill for repairs to the bridge, which has been closed for days at a time by high river levels during the winter months for the past five years.
“What happens is, in the winter the river freezes and it blocks up and it comes on our road and makes ice,” he said. “It's impassable for our cottagers up there and there's homeowners up there as well … It's kind of a unique situation where you have flooding in the winter.”
