Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) consists of five titles. Title I of the act prohibits discrimination against persons with disabilities in employment. Title II prohibits discrimination by state and local governments and requires that they ensure all facilities, services and information provided are accessible to persons with disabilities. Title III provides for nondiscrimination against persons with disabilities in public accommodations. Title IV of the act bans discrimination in telecommunications. Finally, a fifth title in the statute contains miscellaneous provisions clarifying ADA's relationship to other laws and addressing such issues as health insurance. Enforcement of the ADA is the responsibility of the U.S. Department of Justice.

The City of Wichita is committed to ensuring that persons with disabilities have access to City services, programs, activities and facilities. The City of Wichita does not discriminate on the basis of disability in its hiring or employment practices.

Individuals who require auxiliary aids and services for effective communication in programs, activities, and services of the City of Wichita are invited to make their requirements and preferences known to the ADA Title II Coordinator.

This notice is available in large print, on audiotape, and in Braille, from the ADA Title II Coordinator in the City Engineer's Office on the 7th Floor.
