Approximately 30 residents of Adams County, both supportive and not, turned out for the informational hearing on the plans of South Adams Trails Inc. (SATI) in Geneva on Thursday night.
In sixth grade English, learning the elements of a short story is a fairly common practice. However, Adams Central Middle School teachers Rhonda Berstch and Lana Shoaf, took this year's project in a unique direction. What started out as a writing assignment to be read by younger students,turned in to an international project.
Adams County Engineer Tim Barkey, as ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) coordinator for the county, said at this week's commissioners meeting that sidewalks at intersections are supposed to have curb ramps.
Four of these ramps are needed in the Chapel Chase subdivision, but that is the only county-owned location that needs to have them added, according to Barkey. He expects the project to cost approximately $4,500 and asked where the money should come from.
