|Policy on Americans with Disabilities|
In 1990, the Federal Government enacted the Americans with Disabilities Act ("ADA"). Allen County, Indiana recognizes its legal obligation to comply with Title II of the ADA and hereby establishes a transition plan to ensure compliance of this federal law, rules and regulations. Therefore Allen County will identify barriers that exist and state how and when the barriers are to be removed by providing a means to address complaints of discrimination, by encouraging public input to assess, address and meet access needs, and by establishing periodic reviews of the plan to monitor progress and compliance. The purpose of the Plan is to ensure that the citizens of Allen County are provided full access to the Allen County programs, services and activities in a timely manner. The Allen County elected officials and staff believe the ability to accommodate disabled persons is essential to good customer service, the quality of life Allen County residents seek to enjoy and to effective governance. Title II of the ADA requires that each of the Allen County services, programs and activities, when viewed in their entirety, be readily accessible and usable by individuals with disabilities.
