Without cil complaining, I doubt that N.A. would ever have gotten around to making city properties handicap accessible and compliant with laws that have been on the books for years.

The politicians could have avoided all of this simply by beginning a slow, reasonably priced project to become ADA compliant. It would have cost the taxpayers very little if the improvements were staged over a span of years.

But no, they decided to kick the can down the road until the Feds stepped in. This is not Cil's fault. It is the fault of everyone who supported the politicians that ignored the issue.

Predictably, the politicians never kicked the issue of handing out raises down the road as they did with ADA compliance.

Are you happy now, suckers?
