The Lodi Chamber of Commerce will host a workshop Aug. 31 highlighting what businesses need to do to stay in compliance with Americans with Disabilities Act regulations.

Though the workshop has been held twice in the past, CEO and president of the Chamber of Commerce Pat Patrick said this year’s workshop is being held in part as a response to the current litigations that some local businesses are facing.

    Raymond... thank you for taking notice and I sincerely hope something can be done to foster a partnership between small business and Lodi representatives. I think it would be good business for Lodi in demonstrating Lodi takes care of small businesses that wants to operate in this city..

    Darrell and Pat, and know I am not related to Patrick Crow. I will make that suggestion and talk to one of our local attorneys and see if they would be open to holding a workshop. Thank you for the great idea. We just thought it was necessary to hold this current workshop so that maybe a few local businesses can avoid the entire legal process by making sure their "shop" is in order.

    To add to Patrict's thought, The chamber and the city of Lodi should offer teamwork and support for Lodi businesses in fighting this extortion... not just explanation of how the law works.

    While I applaud the Chamber for providing this program to its members, I think a better course of action might be a class to teach businesses how to fight frivolous lawsuits filed by sheister attorneys. Something must be done about these amoeba. Their only objective is to extort money from hard-working citizens.
