In accordance with the requirements of Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (“ADA”) the City of Jacksonville Beach will not discriminate against individuals with disabilities in providing services, programs or activities.
The City will make efforts, upon request, to provide appropriate aids and services leading to effective communication for qualified persons with disabilities so they can participate in 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.
Reasonable accommodations will be made to policies and programs to ensure that people with disabilities have an equal opportunity to enjoy all of its programs, services and activities. For example, individuals with service animals are welcomed in the City of Jacksonville Beach offices.
Anyone who requires an auxiliary aid or service for effective communication, or a modification of policies or procedures to participate in a program, service or activity of the City of Jacksonville Beach should contact the Human Resources/Risk Management Office at 247-6263 or for city meetings the City Clerk’s Office at 247-6299 at least 4 days prior to the meeting or event.
The ADA does not require the City to take any action that would fundamentally alter the nature of its programs or services, or impose an undue financial or administrative burden.
Complaints that a program, service, or activity of the City of Jacksonville Beach is not accessible to persons with disabilities should be directed to the ADA Coordinator at 247-6263 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
The City of Jacksonville Beach has adopted a grievance procedure for prompt and equitable resolution of complaints alleging any action prohibited by the United States Department of Justice regulations implementing Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Title II states, in part, that “no otherwise qualified disabled individual shall, solely by reason of such disability, be excluded from the participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination” in programs, services or activities sponsored by a public entity.
Complaints should be addressed to:
ADA Coordinator, Human Resources/Risk Management Office
