Americans with Disabilities Act
Americans with Disabilities Act:
Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) prohibits local governments from discriminating against people on the basis of their disability and from excluding people from participation in programs, services, or activities because of their disability. In accordance with Title II of the ADA, the City of Sachse will not discriminate against qualified individuals with disabilities on the basis of disability in its services, programs, or activities.
The City of Sachse will generally, upon request, provide appropriate aids and services leading to effective communication for qualified persons with disabilities so they can participate equally in City programs, services, and activities.
Complaints that a City program, service, or activity is not accessible to persons with disabilities should be directed to:
Lauren Rose, Assistant to the City Manager/ADA Coordinator
3815-B Sachse Road
Sachse, Texas 75048
The City of Sachse 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 Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
Modifications to Policies and Procedures:
The City of Sachse will make all reasonable modifications to policies and programs to ensure that persons with disabilities have an equal opportunity to enjoy all City programs, services, and activities. Anyone who requires an auxiliary aid or service for effective communication, or a modification of policies or procedures to participate in a City program, service, or activity, should contact the office of the ADA Coordinator as soon as possible, but no later than 48-hours before the scheduled event.
The ADA does not require the City to take any action that would fundamentally alter the nature of its programs or services, or impose an undue financial or administrative burden. The City will not place a surcharge on a particular individual with a disability or any group of individuals with disabilities to cover the cost of providing auxiliary aids/services or reasonable modifications of policy, such as retrieving items from locations that are open to the public but are not accessible to persons who use wheelchairs.
The City of Sachse is open to receiving suggestions on ways in which to improve the services offered to its residents relative to accommodating disabilities. Please complete the suggestion form to submit your input.
