Buffalo Council to Address ADA Accessibility

The Buffalo City Council is expected to take action on a resolution concerning the submission of an application for federal funding for the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) Transition Plan Project at their meeting Tuesday evening.

According to www.fhwa.dot.gov, under requirements of the ADA, state and local governments, public entities and agencies are required to perform self-evaluations of their current facilities to assess the accessibility requirements of the ADA for a necessary program access plan.
They are required to develop a Program Access Plan to address any deficiencies and identify obstacles that limit the accessibility to individuals with disabilities, describe how to make the facilities accessible, provide a schedule for making access modifications, and identify public officials responsible for implementation of the Transition Plan.
The Plan is required to be updated periodically until all accessibility barriers are removed.

Also on the agenda for the council, the West Valley Homeowners Association is scheduled to discuss the Dump Draw Detention Pond; the council is expected to award the contract for audit services; and street closure requests from the Buffalo Kiwanis Club will be discussed.

The city council meeting gets underway at 5pm in Buffalo's City Hall, and it is open to the public.
