DYER | The town has until the end of the year to come up with a plan to make its facilities and infrastructure ADA-compatible.

Implementing a set of changes stipulated by the Americans with Disabilities Act would make the town eligible for federal highway money, town administrator Rick Eberly told the Town Council.

The changes would cost between $80,000 and $100,000 and could be implemented over 10 years or more, Eberly said. Community Development Block Grant money, which the town receives every two years, could be used to fund the changes.

ADA-compatible changes would include modifying sidewalks or adding an automatic door opener at Town Hall. All the town currently has to do is create and approve a plan for these eventual changes, Eberly said.
