Notice under the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, as amended by the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments of 2008 (ADAAA).
In accordance with the requirements of Title II of the ADAAA no qualified individual with a disability shall, on the basis of disability, be excluded from participation in or be denied the benefits of the services, programs, or activities of the City, access to City facilities, or be subjected to discrimination by the City.
Employment: The City of Stillwater does not discriminate on the basis of disability in its hiring or employment practices and complies with all regulations issued by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission under Title I of the ADAAA.
Effective Communication: The City of Stillwater will generally, upon request, provide appropriate aids and services leading to effective communication for qualified individuals with disabilities so they can participate equally in any of the City of Stillwater’s programs, services, or 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 City of Stillwater will make all reasonable modifications to policies and programs to ensure that individuals with disabilities have an equal opportunity to enjoy all of its facilities, programs, services, and activities. For example, service animals are welcome in the City of Stillwater 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 program, service, and/or activity of the City of Stillwater, should contact the City Manager's Office as soon as reasonable but no later than 48 hours before the scheduled event.
The ADAAA does not require the City of Stillwater to take any action that would fundamentally alter the nature of its programs, services, or activities, or impose an undue financial or administrative burden.
Complaints that a facility, program, service, or activity of the City of Stillwater is not accessible to individuals with disabilities should be directed to the City Manager's Office.
