Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA)
In compliance with Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, it is the policy of the City of Sammamish (the "City") to assure that no person with a disability shall be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or otherwise discriminated against under any of its programs, services or activities solely based on a disability.
The City will make all reasonable modifications to policies and programs to ensure people with disabilities have an equal opportunity to enjoy its programs, services, and activities. The ADA does not require the City to take any action that would fundamentally alter the nature of its programs or services. It is also not required to take actions that would impose an undue financial or administrative burden.
