- Has a record of such an impairment; or
- Is regarded as having such impairment.
The town is committed to:
- Providing reasonable accommodation for an individual with a disability to participate in employment, activities, programs, and services and has established procedures to allow persons with a disability to request reasonable accommodation;
- Providing access to persons using its facilities, buildings, and town-maintained roads, sidewalks, and crosswalks; and
- Ensuring that communications with applicants, participants, beneficiaries, members of the public, and companions with disabilities are as effective as communications with others.
The town has an ADA coordinator who can answer ADA-related questions and handle reasonable accommodation requests as well as provide information on established procedures for filing a complaint alleging discrimination on the basis of a disability. The ADA coordinator can be contacted at the phone number and address listed below. Any questions or comments concerning this policy should be referred to the ADA coordinator.
