Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Position Statement
Title II and III of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 protects qualified individuals with disabilities from discrimination on the basis of disability in services, programs, and activities provided by State and local government entities.
The City of Havelock is committed to treating all persons with dignity, respect, and fairness, and ensuring that our actions comply with local, state and federal laws. In this regard, we support and comply with the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and will not discriminate against qualified individuals on the basis of disability in our services, programs, or activities.
Employees are our most important resource. The City of Havelock will not discriminate on the basis of disability in our hiring or employment practices. The City fully supports and complies with all ADA regulations of the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
The City of Havelock is committed to providing all citizens with the opportunity to participate fully in the public process as well as in our programs, services, and activities. As we strive to be open, ensure access, and encourage involvement, the City will, upon request, provide appropriate aids and services leading to effective communication for qualified persons with disabilities.
Modifications to Policies & Procedures
The City of Havelock will make reasonable modifications to policies and programs to ensure that persons with disabilities have an equal opportunity to enjoy and participate in our programs, services, and activities. Persons requiring auxiliary aids or services for effective communication, or a modification to policies or procedures in order to participate in a City program, service, or activity should contact the City's ADA Coordinator as soon as possible, allowing sufficient time for the City to consider the request and make necessary arrangements before the scheduled event. Please note that more time might be needed to ensure that auxiliary aids or services are available or to research, recommend, and/or modify the related policies or procedures.
The City Manager is responsible for ADA compliance. Please, direct complaints about the accessibility of a City program, service, or activity, to the City of Havelock's ADA Coordinator.
