WHAT IS IT? Work at the corner of Third and Center streets in Hannibal was underway Tuesday morning in preparation for the installation of an ADA-compliant sidewalk ramp on the intersection’s southeast corner.
While most of the downtown improvement project’s work has been focused on North Main Street in recent months, on Tuesday morning a small part of the project was taking place on the southeast corner of the Third and Center street intersection.
According to Brian Chaplin, project manager for the city, a ramp compliant with Americans with Disabilities Act regulations was being installed at the location.
“We’re making it ADA (compliant) to match the other three intersections in this block,” he said.
ADA-compliant ramps were already in place at the Third and Center intersection’s other three corners.

Complying with federal accessibility regulations will cost the City of Logansport more than $8 million, according to a recently issued report.

A consulting firm hired this summer by the city researched the cost of aligning with federal regulations and making Logansport public facilities more accommodating for people with disabilities.

Like communities all over the country, the city is taking steps to comply with the Americans With Disabilities Act passed by the U.S. Congress in 1990. The civil rights law prohibits discrimination based on disability, part of which concerns ensuring counties, cities and towns provide ways to make public facilities accessible to those in wheelchairs and who have other disabilities.

Streamwood man’s letters to businesses target ADA compliance

Streamwood man’s letters to businesses target ADA compliance

Melissa Jaros didn’t know what to think when she received an unexpected letter in the mail on Aug. 29.
A man she didn’t know was threatening to sue her if she didn’t send him $5,000 and make changes to the parking lot of her Streamwood business, Grooming Unleashed.
Streamwood lawyer threatens lawsuits over lack of handicapped spaces
The letter, written by disabled Streamwood resident Andrew Straw, stated Jaros’ business is in violation of the American with Disabilities Act and because of that, he was seeking damages and a quick fix that included curb cuts and better signage for handicapped parking.

Confused and a bit offended, Jaros threw out the letter.

Grooming Unleashed is one of more than a dozen businesses Straw sent the correspondence to a few weeks ago. His demand letters have created a stir among members of the village’s business community, many of whom are suspicious of his intentions. The executive director of the Streamwood Chamber of Commerce even called police after getting the letter, worried it was a scam.

The ADA and City Governments: Common Problems

Astreet cornerccess to civic life by people with disabilities is a fundamental goal of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). To ensure that this goal is met, Title II of the ADA requires State and local governments to make their programs and services accessible to persons with disabilities. This requirement extends not only to physical access at government facilities, programs, and events — but also to policy changes that governmental entities must make to ensure that all people with disabilities can take part in, and benefit from, the programs and services of State and local governments. In addition, governmental entities must ensure effective communication — including the provision of necessary auxiliary aids and services — so that individuals with disabilities can participate in civic life.

Curb ramps providing access to streets and sidewalks are a basic city service.



One important way to ensure that Title II’s requirements are being met in cities of all sizes is through self-evaluation, which is required by the ADA regulations. Self-evaluation enables local governments to pinpoint the facilities, programs and services that must be modified or relocated to ensure that local governments are complying with the ADA.

This document contains a sampling of common problems shared by city governments of all sizes that have been identified through the Department of Justice’s ongoing enforcement efforts. The document provides examples of common deficiencies and explains how these problems affect persons with disabilities. The document is not intended to be comprehensive or exhaustive.   Read more…

Request for Special Accommodation

The Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA), a federal civil rights statute, requires all state and local governmental entities, including the courts, to accommodate the needs of persons with disabilities who have an interest in court activities, programs, and services. The Superior Court does not discriminate on the basis of disability in employment or in the admission and access to its services, programs or activities. The Court has designated an ADA Coordinator at each Court facility to carry out each facility’s compliance with the nondiscrimination requirements of the ADA.

Persons with disabilities who require a special accommodation to access Court programs, services or activities may request the needed accommodation by filling out the Request for Accommodations by Persons with Disabilities and Order form, Judicial Council Form MC-410. Forms are available by clicking on the form name below, at the Clerk’s office and the ADA Coordinator’s office of each Courthouse, and by mail upon request to the ADA Coordinator’s office.

National Council on Disability Explores Scope of and Solutions to Veterans Backlog

ADA Compliance Specialist
ALC Construction, llc

In partnership with current and former service members, the National Council on Disability (NCD) – an independent federal agency that advises the President, Congress and other federal agencies on disability policy – has released a report titled,  “Clearing the Backlog and Facilitating Benefits for America’s Veterans.” The 80-page report includes opinions and evaluations by key stakeholders, buoyed by the insights of experts, in addressing the current state of the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) disability claims backlog.

NCD thanks Paralyzed Veterans of America for numerous, invaluable contributions in preparing this report.

“In the same spirit with which Americans honor all Veterans for their service to our country, the National Council on Disability has chosen National Military Families month and the day after Veterans Day to offer these recommendations to help clear the backlog in getting necessary supports to U.S. Veterans,” said NCD member Captain Jonathan Kuniholm, USMC (Retired). “Making good on the promises made to Veterans with service-connected disabilities and health issues, financial uncertainty, and other hardships when adjusting to civilian life in a timely manner is the least that we can do for those ‘who shall have borne the battle.’ NCD hopes this report can facilitate meaningful improvements across numerous areas of concern.”

“NCD’s findings and recommendations focus on necessary actions that need to be taken to reduce the VA claims backlog,” said NCD member Janice Lehrer-Stein. “Improvements have been made, but more needs to be done. NCD recognizes the important and ongoing progress that has been made to date and remains available to assist in the collaboration of all federal agencies to find the best and most coordinated way forward.”
