HAHIRA, GA (WALB) -

The city of Hahira was taking action as of Wednesday as a resident was threatening to take the city to court, claiming the city is violating state and federal ADA requirements.

The resident claims that some handicapped parking spaces are not properly marked with signs.

City Manager Jonathan Sumner said the city has identified some spots in downtown that do need to be changed and the city is working to make the changes.

"There is signage that needs to be indicated there at [the] approximate height off the ground and we're in the process of working with our public works director and our police chief to make sure that those signs are in place," Sumner explained.

Sumner said six signs were expected to go up within the next two to three weeks in the downtown area. He added that as of Wednesday, city officials were still in the process of meeting with the citizen to discuss his concerns in detail.
