The Bay City commission is considering a proposal that would turn it’s two city owned bridges into toll bridges owned by a private company.
City commissioners says the city is not able to afford the six- million dollars needed to repair and maintain the Independence and Liberty bridges.
Without funding, one - or both - of the bridges may have to close.
Andrew Niedzinski is a Bay City Commissioner. He said under the proposal, United Bridge Partners would set the toll at one dollar for city residents.
