While the state historical board approached the coimty about using local tax dollars to preserve the Warwick bridge, Hardm says the structure is not,salvageable. Moving the bridge to another site, such as the bow-string truss bridge placed at Rocky Pond in.Bdleville several years ago, is also not an economically feasible option in this case says Hardin. *We do plan on removmg the bridge after the documentation has been completed," he says. "This situation may hold us up on building the new bridge, and cost us additional money. "I very mudi believe m history and preservmg our heritage," he adds. "But m preserving history you can't go to ridiculous extremes." The controversy over the bridge is sunilar to a current mtuation m the Herington commtmity, where a former Rock Island depot listed on the State Historical Register was demoUshed by the railroad company owning the building. Kansas Attorney General Robert Steplum is looking for a legal way to force the railroad company to rebuild the depot, althou^ the community had no plans in place to preserve the building.
