Americans with Disabilities Act

Americans with Disabilities Act Notice

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a Federal law that was adopted in 1990. The ADA provides a comprehensive national mandate for the elimination of discrimination against individuals with disabilities in employment, transportation public accommodations, state and municipal government activities and telecommunications. Different parts of the law became effective on different dates.

Effective January 26, 1992, municipal governments must provide equal opportunity for persons with disabilities in their programs, activities, and services. In addition, cities and towns had to appoint an ADA Coordinator to oversee the municipality’s efforts to comply with the law and handle disability based discrimination complaints.
