Hudson – Selectmen unanimously approved on Feb. 5 a $15,000 contract to help Hudson evaluate its compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
The grant-funded contract pays the nonprofit Northeast Independent Living Program $15,000 to guide the town in developing a self-evaluation of ADA compliance. From there, the contract also pays the group to help Hudson plan improvements based on the findings of its initial review.
Passed in 1990, the ADA mandates, among other things, ramps and curb cutouts to allow disabled people to access public facilities.
