Americans with Disabilities Act
Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 and the Rehabilitation Act of 1973
Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (Section 504 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) forbid discrimination against those who have disabilities. Furthermore, these laws require federal aid recipients and other government entities to take affirmative steps to reasonably accommodate the disabled and ensure their needs are equitably represented in transportation programs, services, or activities.
The City will make every effort to ensure the facilities, programs, services, or activities are accessible to those with disabilities. The City will make every effort to ensure the advisory committees, public involvement activities, and all other programs, services, or activities include representation by the disabled community and disability service groups.
The City encourages the public to report any facility, program, service, or activity that appears inaccessible to those who are disabled. Furthermore, the City will provide reasonable accommodation to disabled individuals who wish to participate in public involvement events or who require special assistance to access facilities, programs, services, or activities. Providing reasonable accommodation may require outside assistance, organization, or resources so the City asks that requests be made at least five (5) business days prior to the need for accommodation.
Questions, concerns, comments, or requests for accommodation should be made to the City's ADA Coordinator:
