These repairs are necessary keep the bridge open, while the City works with MassDOT to do a full replacement of the bridge.
“Jayne Vining, CEO of RevolutionaryClinincs, II and LibertyVining, COO, have been great partners to the City of Fitchburg,” said Mayor DiNatale. “The City could not be more thankful to RevolutionaryClinics for locating their business in Fitchburg and their investment in our community. The Oak Hill Road Bridge provides direct access to the Cleghorn neighborhood, but more importantly it is utilized by our first responders to enhance their response time. For this reason, the repairs to the bridge is the ideal project for RevolutionaryClinics’ gift.”
Mayor DiNatale continued, “These Community Host Benefit Agreements would not be possible without the support and hard work of the City Solicitor, Vincent Pusateri, II. Through the Solicitor’s efforts, the City of Fitchburg will be gifted millions of dollars, through the duration of these agreements.”
Currently, the City of Fitchburg holds four different Host Agreements. The $25,000 gifted by RevolutionaryClincs, is the first the City has received.
The remaining $60,000 for the bridge repair will be before City Council on November 9, in the form of an order, to be appropriated from available funds.
