County seeking feedback about accessibility

Huntington County officials are seeking comments from the public on the handicapped accessibility of county-owned facilities and county-operated programs.

The action is part of the county's efforts to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), which requires that all of the county's services, programs and activities be readily accessible and usable by individuals with disabilities.

A meeting to gather comments will be held on Thursday, Dec. 6, from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. in the GAR Room, located on the second floor of the Huntington County Courthouse, 201 N. Jefferson St., Huntington.
The meeting will begin with a brief explanation of the project.

Following that presentation, those attending may discuss barriers that exist, or are perceived to exist, to persons with disabilities in accessing county programs.

Comments may also be submitted in writing no later than Dec. 7 at 5 p.m. to Erika Devine, ADA coordinator, by mailing them to the courthouse or by email at Erika.Devine@ huntington.in.us.

Anyone who needs special assistance to participate in the meeting should contact Devine at 358-4822 at least three business days in advance of the meeting.
