The Brentwood firehouse will be featured in a story on KSDK news on Thursday evening, Aug. 30, a Brentwood resident reports.
Brentwood resident Barry Williams said KSDK plans to broadcast a story about a problem at Brentwood’s new fire station. He said resident Rich Emery was interviewed for the story.
Williams said he thinks the story will be about the fact that the firehouse, which opened in 2011, doesn’t comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
Brentwood city attorney, Kevin O’Keefe, told the board of aldermen in a May meeting that the building doesn’t comply because it was built with no elevator to the second floor. The aldermen discussed buying property next to the firehouse to build an elevator. The cost of the property for a new elevator was estimated to be $200,000.
Williams said the coverage will be on KSDK Channel 5 at 6:00 p.m. Update: See the story here.
