Americans with Disabilities, II
(ADA) Public Access to County Programs
The County of Orange is committed
to on-going efforts to provide access to public services
to all clients of the County of Orange.
Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act prohibits
all state and local governmental agencies from discriminating
against a person with disabilities and from excluding
participation in or denying benefits of programs, services
or activities to persons with disabilities.
To ensure that individuals with disabilities can fully
participate in and benefit from the public services offered
by the County of Orange, the Board of Supervisors adopted
a policy prohibiting discrimination against persons with
disabilities in June of 1994.
The Board of Supervisors established a County
ADA Title II Coordinator. That position is located
within the CEO/Office of Risk Management and has corporate
oversight over the departmental implementation of programs
to support compliance with ADA II.
In addition to corporate oversight, a specific ADA II
Coordinator has been designated for each County department
and agency to assist in their on-going implementation
of programs supportive of the full service provision.
Complaints, concerns, or recommendations regarding public
access to any County programs, services or activities,
should initially be reported to that department or agency
ADA II Coordinator. That departmental ADA II Coordinator
can immediately begin to resolve the matter. Click
