Vincennes Aiming to Make City Hall ADA Compliant

Posted on November 14th, 2017

A bid for major changes to Vincennes City Hall was opened last night.

The project would see an update to make City Hall compliant with the Americans With Disabilities Act. Those changes including altering building entrances to make the doors automatic, changing restrooms to make them more handicap accessible, changing seating inside council chambers to widen aisles and adding a ramp to the platform on which various councils sit.

Mayor Joe Yochum says it’s important that all citizens have the same access to the facility.

The lone bid for the project thus far came from Wolfe Construction of Vincennes. That bid came in at $382,000. The Board of Works took that bid under advisement and will discuss with with the architects who drew up the plans.

To pay for the project, Yochum says the city will take a look at their budget to see where potential cuts could be made.
