ADA & Accessibility

In accordance with the requirements of Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA), the Town of Lee will not discriminate against qualified individuals with disabilities on the basis of disability in its services, programs, or activities. Employment: The Town of Lee 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. Effective Communication: The Town of Lee will generally, upon request, provide appropriate aids and services leading to effective communications for qualified persons with disabilities so they can participate equally in the Town of Lee’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 Town of Lee will make all reasonable modifications to policies or procedures 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 welcome in the Town of Lee’s facilities/properties, 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 or activity of the Town of Lee, should contact the Town’s ADA Coordinator as soon as possible but no later than forty-eight (48) hours before the scheduled event.

The Town of Lee understands the importance of accessibility and is committed to achieving WCAG 2.0 Level AA compliance for all new content and as much of the old content as possible on the Town’s website.   We are in the process of revising and updating our website.  This process includes our efforts to identify and address areas such as accessibility that need improvement.  Should you have any comments or questions about our website, please contact the Town’s ADA Coordinator.
