Notice Under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)

In accordance with the requirement of Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA), the City of Clayton will not discriminate against qualified persons with disabilities on the basis of disabilities in its services, programs and activities.

Employment: The City of Clayton 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 City of Clayton will generally, upon request, provide appropriate aids and services leading to effective communication for qualified persons with disabilities so they can participate equally in the City of Clayton programs, services and activities, including qualified sign language interpreters, documents in Braille, and other ways of making information and communication accessible to people with speech, hearing or vision impairments.

Modification to Policies and Procedures: The City of Clayton will make all reasonable accommodations to policies and programs 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 welcomed in City of Clayton facilities, even where pets are generally prohibited. 

The City of Clayton will not place a surcharge on a particular individual with disability or group of individuals with disabilities to cover the cost of providing auxiliary aids/services or reasonable accommodations of policy, such as retrieving items from locations that are open to the public but not accessible to persons who use wheelchairs. The ADA does not require the City of Clayton to take any action that would fundamentally alter the nature or its programs or services, or impose an undue financial or administrative burden.
