NOTICE REGARDING TITLE II OF THE AMERICANS
WITH DISABILITIES ACT
Gulf Coast Authority (“GCA”) acting pursuant to 28 C.F.R. § 35.106, provides this notice regarding Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (“Title II”) and its applicability to the services, programs, and activities provided by GCA.
Policy. Title II establishes requirements for making the services, programs, and activities of a local government entity more accessible to disabled persons. It is the policy of GCA to comply with the requirements of Title II and to make its services, programs, and activities reasonably available to disabled persons, as long as that can be done without fundamentally altering the nature of its services, programs or activities, or imposing an undue financial or administrative burden on GCA.
Reasonable accommodation. GCA, upon reasonable notice, will provide auxiliary aids/services where necessary to enable effective communications between GCA and a disabled person. GCA will also make reasonable modifications to its services, programs, and activities where necessary in order to allow disabled persons an equal opportunity to enjoy those services, programs, and activities. GCA will not impose any surcharges to cover the costs of providing auxiliary aids/services or making modifications to its services, programs, or activities.
GCA contacts. Anyone who believes that, because of their disability, they require an auxiliary aid/service for effective communication with GCA, or a modification to its services, programs, and activities to enable their participation, may contact the GCA’s ADA Coordinator at 281-488-4115 for assistance.
Americans with Disabilities Act Grievance Procedure. Complaints concerning discrimination on the basis of disability by GCA may be sent to GCA’s General Manager and ADA Coordinator at 281-488-4115. The ADA Coordinator will contact the complaint within 15 calendar days after receipt of the complaint to discuss the complaint and will respond in writing within 15 days of the discussion.
