ADA Numbers

Body
The City of Guthrie has received the first report of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Self-Evaluation and Transition Plan from their engineering firm Meyers Engineering. The report was to be originally discussed by the ADA Advisory Committee on Jan.27, but with only one member out of six showing up for the meeting, the meeting will have to be rescheduled. The ADA Advisory Committee was formed several years ago to review the needs of the city and to help prioritize the city’s needs. The report is just the first step for the committee. The News Leader was given a copy of the report that night. The report, which has taken almost a year to complete will cost the city approximately $5.1 million at today’s pricing. The city has set aside $100,000 a year in their budget to deal with the various issues.

Chang, the Director of Library Services, said the theme is a representation of the diverse attendees that come from across the state to participate in the event and serves as a platform for Oklahoma women to speak about who they are and push against traditional stereotypes of what an Oklahoma woman should be.
