Of course it will cost $$$$$$$. This isn't on the "want" list...it's on the "need" list.

Other than building new facilities, this is the only option.  

All public buildings should be accessible to those that are handicapped/challenged.

There is a whole generation, baby boomers who have to do business downtown and being out of compliance for 22 years since the American with Disabilities Act was instituted and our building is almost 100 years old says it is more than behind schedule. Although, if it does generate more traffic than any other building why not move across the street and merge the two. Use the antiquated building for something else. The County Courts building has elevators, ramps and could be updated, or re- designed with that in mind. Also, considering the money it would take to improve and update this building it doesn't sound cost effective, or worth that heavy of an investment.

It is a little more involved than just saying merge the county and city offices.  My belief is that with some careful planning an elevator could be added to the outside of the building for a whole lot less money.  How about it, anyone else think this could be a viable alternative?
