The Dix Hills Park pool will soon become more handicapped-accessible, now that the Huntington Town board has approved the purchase of a chair lift.

The board voted to spend as much as $5,000 to purchase and install an American with Disabilities Act-compliant chair lift at the outdoor, 50-meter swimming pool. The facility currently has a ramp for the handicapped but no chair lift.

The funds will be transferred from the Open Space Land and Park Improvement Fund, according to town documents.
