The County of Orange is committed to on-going efforts to provide access to public services to all clients of the County of Orange. Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act prohibits all state and local governmental agencies from discriminating against a person with disabilities and from excluding participation in or denying benefits of programs, services or activities to persons with disabilities.
To ensure that individuals with disabilities can fully participate in and benefit from the public services offered by the County of Orange, the Board of Supervisors adopted a policy prohibiting discrimination against persons with disabilities in June of 1994. The Board of Supervisors established a County ADA Title II Coordinator. That position is located within the CEO/Office of Risk Management and has corporate oversight over the departmental implementation of programs to support compliance with ADA II.
In addition to corporate oversight, a specific ADA II Coordinator has been designated for each County department and agency to assist in their on-going implementation of programs supportive of the full service provision. Complaints, concerns, or recommendations regarding public access to any County programs, services or activities, should initially be reported to that department or agency ADA II Coordinator. That departmental ADA II Coordinator can immediately begin to resolve the matter.
