Accessibility on This Website
The Town of Johnsburg ensured that custom programming within the website, as well as an available Accessibility Widget that is powered by a dedicated accessibility server, will provide all users with the ability to use accessibility features. These enhancements allow the site to improve its compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) and Section 504, Title II of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, amended 2011 by conforming with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.0).
What Is Section 504?
Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 is a national law that protects qualified individuals from discrimination based on their disability. The nondiscrimination requirements of the law apply to employers and organizations, including local governments and municipalities, whether or not they receive financial assistance from any Federal department or agency. Section 504 states that “no qualified individual with a disability in the United States shall be excluded from, denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under”.
