Americans With Disabilities Act
Americans with Disablities Act
AMERICANS WITH DISABILITIES ACT (ADA)
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 is a civil rights law that prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities. Title II of the ADA requires that all public programs, services, and activities be accessible to individuals with disabilities.
BUFFALO COUNTY’S MISSION FOR ADA COMPLIANCE
Buffalo County will not discriminate against qualified individuals with disabilities on the basis of disability in its programs, services, or activities. Buffalo County does not discriminate on the basis of disability in its hiring or employment practices. Buffalo County will make reasonable modifications to our policies or procedures when necessary to avoid discrimination on the basis of disability, unless the modification would fundamentally alter the nature of the program or service or impose an undue financial or administrative burden. Buffalo 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.
BUFFALO COUNTY’S AMERICANS WITH DISABILITIES (ADA) POLICIES AND PROCEDURES
To ensure that the citizens of Buffalo County are provided access to the County’s programs, services, and activities without physical or administrative barrier, we have created the following policies and procedures:
