Notice Under the Americans with Disabilities Act
In accordance with Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (“ADA”) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the city will not discriminate against qualified individuals with disabilities on the basis of disability in its services, programs, or activities.
The city 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 ADA. Employment discrimination complaints can be made to the Human Resources Department at (623) 773-7100 (voice) or (623)-773-7221 (TTY).
The City of Peoria is committed to providing access to our electronic and information technology, including our web pages, for individuals with disabilities in accordance with applicable law. The City is committed to ensuring that members of the public with disabilities and City employees with disabilities have access to and use of information and data that is comparable to the access and use by members of the public and City employees who are not individuals with disabilities, unless an undue burden would be imposed upon us.
If you have a disability and the format of any material on our web pages interferes with your ability to access the information, please contact the City's webmaster at firstname.lastname@example.org. The webmaster will refer your request to the appropriate City contact, who will respond to your request. To enable us to respond in a manner most helpful to you, please indicate the nature of the accessibility problem, the web address of the requested material, your preferred format in which you want to receive the material (electronic format (ASCII, etc.), standard print, large print, etc.), and your contact information.
Modifications to Policies and Procedures
The city will make all reasonable modifications to policies and programs to ensure that people with disabilities have an equal opportunity to enjoy all city programs, services, and activities. For example, individuals with service animals are welcomed in city offices, even where pets are generally prohibited.
Anyone who requires an auxiliary aid or service for effective communication, or a modification of policies or procedures to participate in a city program, service, or activity, should contact the office of the ADA Coordinator for the city of Peoria using the information on this page as soon as possible but no later than two (2) business days before the scheduled event. To the extent possible, additional reasonable accommodations will be made available within the time constraints of the request.
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.
The city 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. For example, the city will not charge to retrieve items from locations that are open to the public but are not accessible to persons who use wheelchairs.
Complaints that a city program, service, or activity is not accessible to persons with disabilities should be directed to the ADA Coordinator for the city of Peoria using the contact information in the sidebar.
