Are we thinking about those with disabilities?

In Galveston, city officials said they hope that a $6 million plan to improve amenities on the seawall be complete by July 2015.

Included with the front-page story (“Seawall Upgrade,” Daily News, July 6) was a picture of a portable bathroom.

Right next to it is the only portacan accessible to the disabled that I know of.

The picture shows the door broken off the hinges. It has been that way for quite some time.

I am all for enhancements to the seawall, but the city needs to maintain what it has. What message are we sending to our disabled community?
