Bridgewater Councillor suggests demolishing 99 Aberdeen Road property

Councillor David Mitchell
The state of the building at 99 Aberdeen Road continues to bother at least one member of Bridgewater council. David Mitchell says something needs to be done to fix the eyesore in the heart of the town. He says he's fed up with the look of the building.
"Well, I think it's pretty sad when someone owns a piece of property in any community and then just lets it get to that condition and doesn't care that it's in that condition. My thought is, and it is almost the same as the Mayor, I think it's about time that building came down."
Mitchell says it's the owners responsibility to upkeep the building, and right now, that's not being done.

A call to the building's owner, Frank Rhyno, wasn't returned.
