Major: A Montezuma resident thanks Summit County for flood response
June 20, 2014
I want to send a huge thank you to Summit County Road and Bridge for its efficient and professional handling of the Montezuma Road washout. Contrary to a quote in last week's paper, road and bridge crews were working on the problems prior to the washout, during the washout, immediately afterwards and consistently for the past two weeks.
A walking bridge was in place within two days and a temporary driving bridge within four days. Impressive. Did you know you could borrow a bridge from another county?
All three of our county commissioners, the county manager and Sheriff John Minor were on site for the first couple of days collaborating on a strategic plan for short-term and long-term solutions to the problem.
Though none of the above heeded my request for helicopter transportation in and out of 'Zuma, the ability to get to and from our homes was quick and continues to be manageable.
So thanks to all of you who have helped us wade through this mess. (Pun intended.)
