indicated vesterday that Rock Island
county is not ready to enter into any

Rock Island county supervisors havi
considered the Colona bridge question
for over a year, and recently a reso
lution by the Henry county board

no funds to meet the cost. The esti
mated cost of one of the bridges was

must be built by Henry county or re
