Being accessible means a lot of things to us. Here are a few examples.
Accessibility is a part of everything we do in city government. It’s our job to make sure the services we provide are readily available to everyone.
Here are a few examples of how we incorporate accessibility in our work.
We welcome people of all abilities to participate in our programs! If you or your child has a disability, behavior concern, severe allergy, or other condition requiring accommodation, please let us know at the time of registration.
We’re committed to making sure that we use plain language to communicate with our residents. We’ve trained our employees to not talk fancy “government speak,” which we know doesn’t help you. If you don’t think we’re doing a good job writing clearly, please let us know.[web form]
Our goal is to ensure all of our web pages meet level A or AA standards for the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG).
We use Google Translate to provide translations for our city website. This is a great service, but it’s not perfect, and not all of the services we provide are on our website (yet). We also have translation services for phone calls, which you can use by calling our regular phone numbers or visiting our offices.
Having issues with our website or have idea on how to improve it? We want to hear your feedback!
