Notice Regarding Title II of the Americans With Disabilities ACT
The City of Hilshire Village, Texas, (the “City”) acting pursuant to 28 C.F.R. § 35.106, provides this notice regarding Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 ("Title II") and its applicability to the services, programs, and activities provided by the City.
Policy. Title II establishes requirements for making the services, programs, and activities of a local government entity more accessible to disabled persons. It is the policy of the City to comply with the requirements of Title II and to make its services, programs, and activities reasonably available to disabled persons, as long as that can be done without fundamentally altering the nature of its services, programs or activities, or imposing an undue financial or administrative burden on the City and its taxpayers.
Reasonable accommodation. The City, upon reasonable notice, will provide auxiliary aids/services where necessary to enable effective communications between the City and a disabled person. The City will also make reasonable modifications to its services, programs, and activities where necessary in order to allow disabled persons an equal opportunity to enjoy those services, programs, and activities. The City will not impose any surcharges to cover the costs of providing auxiliary aids/services or making modifications to its services, programs, or activities.
City contacts. Anyone who believes that, because of their disability, they require an auxiliary aid/service for effective communication with the City, or a modification to its services, programs, and activities to enable their participation, may contact the City Administrator or the City Secretary at 713-973-1779 for assistance.
