A.D.A Council
Through education and advocacy, we take steps to eliminate barriers and build community understanding. The City of Spencer organized the American with Disabilities Act (ADA) Council of Spencer on May 12, 1992 to provide assistance to the City in complying with the ADA . The Spencer ADA Council has evolved as a non-threatening group of individuals who act as technical and humanitarian resources to businesses, industries, and persons with disabilities. The Council has been recognized on national, state and local levels for it’s assistance in promoting disability awareness. The Council has also developed a recognition program to recognize those businesses and organizations that have made significant improvements or increased services for persons with disabilities in the community.

Guests and new members are welcome to attend our monthly meetings which are the second Tuesday of each month at 5:00pm. Meetings are open to persons with or without disabilities and are held in the City Hall Council Chambers.
