Notice under the Americans with Disabilities Act
In accordance with the requirements of Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the County will not discriminate against qualified individuals with disabilities on the basis of disability in the County’s services, programs or activities.
Employment: The County does not discriminate on the basis of disability in its hiring or employment practices and complies with all regulations promulgated by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission under Title I of the Americans with Disabilities Act.
Effective Communication: The County will generally, upon request, provide appropriate aids and services leading to effective communication for qualified persons with disabilities so they can participate equally in the County’s programs, services and activities, including qualified sign language interpreters, documents in Braille, and other ways of making information and communications accessible to people who have speech, hearing or vision impairments.
Modifications to Policies and Procedures: The County will make all reasonable modifications to policies and programs to ensure that people with disabilities have an equal opportunity to enjoy all County programs, services and activities. For example, individuals with service animals are welcomed in County offices, even where pets are generally prohibited.
The ADA does not require the County to take any action that would fundamentally alter the nature of its programs or services, or impose an undue financial or administrative burden.
Ada County’s ADA Coordinator is responsible for ensuring compliance for County facilities, services and programs. To request an accommodation or file a complaint, please contact the ADA Coordinator.
