The City is required to have a planned schedule for upgrading public sidewalk ramps to conform to American with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards.  The current schedule and budget will bring the City into compliance in approximately 22 years.

The area of 4th Street & 5th Street, from Sycamore Street to Eddy Street, qualifies for the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and it is recommended that such funds be used to install handicap ramps in this location of the City during the 2015/2016 construction season.  The City will be required to match 50% of the project cost, which is estimated to be $800,000 at this time.

Prairie Land Construction of Loomis, Nebraska was awarded a $447,335.60 construction contract for the handicap ramps on both 4th Street and 5th Street, as well as paving of the alley between 4th Street & 5th Street; from Pine Street to Locust Street.
