• Family searching for answers after problems with parking pad installed for son with disabilities


    A Butler County family is searching for answers after problems with the installation of a parking pad.

    The pad is for Alexander Eisler, a 36-year-old man with physical and mental disabilities who lives with his parents on Main Street in Lyndora.

    The pad was paid for through the Butler County Department of Human Services, who approved a contractor for the project.

    But problems with that contractor left the family with a pad that's nearly unusable because it can only hold the weight of a small car.

    "It all has to be sawed, jackhammered and taken out. That's going to cost more than $9,000. I'm retired and we just don't know," Helen Eisler said.
