Farmersville is taking steps to bring the city and downtown area into compliance with the American Disability Act.
Recently, a $325,000 Texas Capital Fund Main Street Grant was accepted by the Farmersville City Council.
The grant is comprised of the city paying $45,000 and donating $30,000 in-kind services and receiving $250,000.
