ADA Transition Plan
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a civil right law prohibiting discrimination on the basis of disability.  In compliance with Title II of the ADA, which pertains to the programs, activities and services provided by public entities, the City of Troy has conducted a self-evaluation of its services, programs, activities and facilities on public property and within public rights-of-way. This Transition Plan details the methods to be used to ensure compliance with ADA accessibility requirements.

The City has established an ADA grievance procedure, which may be used by anyone who wishes to file a complaint alleging discrimination on the basis of disability in the provisions of services, activities, programs, or benefits by the City of Troy. If you have a complaint regarding discrimination on the basis of disability, please submit your complaint in writing or via email to the ADA Title II Coordinator listed below within 60 days after the alleged ADA violation. The Coordinator or a designee will respond within 30 calendar days. An appeals process is available if the complainant believes the issue is not satisfactorily resolved. 
 
The City will generally, upon request, provide appropriate aids and services leading to effective communication for people with disabilities so that they can participate equally in City programs, services, and activities.

Sidewalk Replacement Program

Sidewalk repair is a vital part of neighborhood and community pride.  Each year a section of the City is selected for the sidewalk replacement program.  This program eliminates safety issues by requiring deteriorated sidewalks be repaired. 

The City Engineering Department reviews the sidewalks and marks the sections that must be replaced.  After the marking is completed, an explanation of the markings, a copy of the required work, an estimated cost, and the options for doing the work are sent to the affected property owners.  The City bids this project and will hire a contractor(s) to perform the work for homeowners who choose this option.  The cost of the project is assessed to the property taxes over a five year period. Homeowners have the option to appoint their own contractor, and avoid the assessment, as long as the contractor is licensed with the City.  The criteria for sidewalk replacements and repairs are established by City Council.

Any property owner that has questions about the program should contact the Engineering Department at (937) 339-2641.
