Decides in Repair Matter
of Burnside Bridge.1 Ti
Uultnomah-eounty wfll have, to foot
the bill when the Burnside street bridge
Is repaired, . according to a. decision
which ws given byrthn ctty Vtttmisy
this inorntne. At a recent council meet
ing city Attorney Ksvanatlgh was asked
to Investigate the wording of ' the. law
governing the maintenance; construc
tion and repair of tho bridges, and V
port. - Since then the attorney has been
looking into the matter and this morn
ing expressed the result of his Investi
gations in a letter, written. to the ct,ty
auditor. '" ' 1 ' ." C - '.rA - .
, mejaira vp to county. .
In his opinion. Mr. Kavanaugh .holds
that the county under the law is bound
to make any repairs, to the. structure
when -.these repairs are ' of such ex
tent aa to. be a reconstruction .of the
bridge either in whole or in part. -According
to the law the city Is boundt0
maintain tba bridge in good condition la
so far as It may be done. When-the lapse
of time, however, . necessitates exten
sive repairs or reconstruction then it Is
up to the county to pay for the work-
The opinion of Mr. Kavanaugh - will
Undoubtedly govern the attitude of the
council Jn dealing with the Burnside re-
fairs. It has been called to the etten
ion of the council repeatedly that the
bridge Is badly In need of repairs and
ths city engineer in an investigation re
ported that extensive work would have
to be done In order t put the bridge In
good condition. Any action has been held
up, however, by the -ambiguity of the
statutes and ordinances providing for
the maintenance of the bridge.- ,
