ADA Accessibility Services

Americans with Disabilities Act Accessibility services

In accordance with the requirements of Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 ("ADA"), the City of Killeen, Texas will not discriminate against qualified individuals with disabilities on the basis of disability in its services, programs, or activities.

Effective Communication: The City provides appropriate aids and services leading to effective communication for qualified persons with disabilities so they can participate equally in City programs, services, and activities, including such aids and services as qualified sign language interpreters, documents in Braille, and other ways of making information and communications accessible to people who have speech, hearing, or vision impairments.

Modifications to Policies and Procedures: The City will make all reasonable modifications to policies and programs to ensure that people with disabilities have an equal opportunity to enjoy all City programs, services, and activities. For example, individuals with service animals are welcome in City offices, even where pets are generally prohibited.

Anyone who requires an auxiliary aid or service for effective communication, or a modification of policies or procedures to participate in a City program, service, or activity, should contact the office of Community Development, Leslie Hinkle, at 254-501-7847 or via email at lhinkle@killeentexas.gov as soon as possible but no later than 48 hours before the scheduled event.

The ADA does not require the City to take any action that would fundamentally alter the nature of its programs or services or impose an undue financial or administrative burden.

Complaints that a City program, service, or activity is not accessible to persons with disabilities should be directed to Leslie Hinkle at 254-501-7847 or via email at lhinkle@killeentexas.gov for ADA Coordinator.

The City will not place a surcharge on a particular individual with a disability or any group of individuals with disabilities to cover the cost of providing auxiliary aids/services or reasonable modifications of policy, such as retrieving items from locations that are open to the public but are not accessible to persons who use wheelchairs.
