Americans with Disabilities Act
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a civil rights statute that prohibits discrimination against people who have disabilities. In accordance with the requirements of Title II of the ADA, Millcreek Township will not discriminate against qualified individuals with disabilities on the basis of disability in its services, programs, or activities. Millcreek Township shall make reasonable modifications in policies, practices, procedures, or programs when necessary to avoid discrimination on the basis of disability or to ensure that people with disabilities have an equal opportunity to enjoy all of the Township's programs, services, and activities. The ADA, however, does not require the Township to take any action or make any modification that would result in a fundamental alteration in the nature of the service, program, or activity or in undue financial or administrative burdens. The Township will not place surcharges on any particular individual or group of individuals with disabilities to cover the cost involved in making programs accessible or providing auxiliary aids/services or reasonable modifications of policy.
Anyone who requires an auxiliary aid or service for effective communication or a modification of policies in a program, service, or activity of Millcreek Township should email Sheryl A. Williams or call at 814-833-1111, ext. 314. Requests should be made as soon as possible but at least 48 hours prior to the scheduled event.
Millcreek Township has adopted and published a Notice Under The Americans With Disabilities Act (PDF) to make available to applicants, participants, beneficiaries, and other interested persons information regarding the provisions of the ADA and its applicability to the services, programs, or activities of the Township, and make such information available to them in such manner as the Township finds necessary to apprise such persons of the protections against discrimination assured them by the ADA.
