Making the city streets handicapped accessible

I want to take this opportunity to say the mayor and the members of the council deserve a heartfelt thank you for making the streets of Elkins handicapped accessible.

I had persistently asked for this in the 1980s and nothing was accomplished.

It is time we took a look at our disabled individual’s resources. I am also disabled and have a motorized wheelchair.

I was in Elkins last month and I was amazed as to how I could cross the streets and everything.

I want to say: “Good job!”

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to speak on this matter.
