Excerpt from Annual Report of the Selectmen and School Committee to the Inhabitants of the Town of Montague, 1869-70 At the last meeting the town voted $1000 to pay town debts. We have diverted this appropriation to the repairs of roads and bridges, made necessary by the October fioods.' With this $1000, together With the $200 appropriated for extra highway work, we have been able to make our repairs without making any debt. That is, we have paid no old debts, and made no new ones on account of the repairs of the roads and bridges. The balance of the cost of the repa1rs being paid out of other income of the town. There remains to be rebuilt the Boutwell and the Jew bridges. At the latter place a temporary bridge has been put over the river by volunteer labor, and without charge to the town. For the rebuilding of this bridge we have the, material on the ground, and the cost will not be large. The Boutwell bridge is over a deep chasm, and will be more expensive. We congratulate our citizens on having come out of the great ﬂood with so little damage, to either public or private property, pared with many of our neighboring towns.
