Effective Communication: The City will generally, upon request, provide appropriate aids and services leading to effective communication for qualified persons with disabilities so they can participate equally in the City’s programs, services, and activities, including qualified sign language interpreters, accessible documents, and other ways of making information and communications accessible to people who have speech, hearing, or vision disabilities.
