Scottville city hall ADA plans underway

July 1, 2013

SCOTTVILLE — Scottville’s city hall will soon be updated to meet federal Americans with Disabilities Act requirements. City Manager Amy Williams reports that the city’s engineering firm, Fleis and Vanderbrink, has inspected the first floor of city hall and has made recommendations to upgrade.

The firm has submitted a proposal that includes preliminary phases which require action by the city commission. Those phases include creating drawings of all three floors of the building and completing construction documents. Another step, outlining future uses of the building, was proposed by Williams said she thinks the city is not ready to look at that at this time.

The city commission is expected to take action on those items during this afternoon’s regular commission meeting at 5:30 p.m. Modifying city hall for ADA compliance is necessary if the city plans to apply for any future grants from the federal government. Recently, a federal grant helped the city purchase a new police car.
