A Summerland councillor would like to know about municipal accessibility services which are not adequate for those who need them.

A Summerland councillor would like to know about municipal accessibility services which are not adequate for those who need them.

Coun. Richard Barkwill said he has heard about wheelchair ramps, parking stalls and other accessibility features which are difficult for users.

He is asking for people to contact him by email at rbarkwill@summerland.ca to identify problem areas.

By mid-September, he plans to have a list compiled. After council and staff examine the areas in question, changes would be made where needed to improve accessibility.
