Elkhart is working on a plan to meet ADA compliance, by making City Hall and other municipal buildings more accessible to those with disabilities.
That's according to our reporting partners at the Elkhart Truth.
It's a problem cities, towns and counties throughout the country are facing, as a December 31 deadline approaches to submit long-range plans to the Federal Government for fixing inadequacies in local buildings.
The Elkhart City Council will review a priority list of proposed improvements later this month. It's estimated it would cost the city about $9.6 million to make all the needed repairs.
Among the biggest concern is an elevator in City Hall with a door that's too narrow to accommodate modern wheelchairs, and a lift that's unreliable.
