Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Information
In accordance with the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, as amended, the County will not discriminate against qualified individuals with disabilities on the basis on 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 regulations promulgated by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, Title I of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
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.
Anyone who requires an auxiliary aid or service for effective communication, or a modification of policies or procedures to participate in a County program, service, or activity, should contact the ADA Coordinator, (808) 241-4956, as soon as possible, but no later than 48 hours before the scheduled event.
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. Complaint that a County program, service, or activity is not accessible to persons with disabilities should be directed to the ADA Coordinator, (808) 241-4956, email@example.com.
The County will not place a surcharge on a particular individual with a disability or any group of individuals with disabilities to cover the cost of providing auxiliary aids/ services or reasonable modifications of policy, such as retrieving items from locations that are open to the public, but are not accessible to persons who use wheelchairs.
