The meeting took place before the regular council meeting and it concerned sidewalk ramps for handicapped people. Here are the hi-lights:
- Must be built by the same contractor and not with new money. The ramps were funded by part of the two million dollars appropriated in 2009. $643,932 was carried over and after paying the final bill for Gohmann paving there was $350,00 left over. ADA mandates that the ramps be up to code.
- CDBG funds cannot be used because CDBG is for low income properties only.
- The cost of each ramp is between $1,000 and $2,000. There will be 300 to 400 ramps built.
- There will be a list of all ramps, locations and cost furnished per Mr. Coffey's request.
