The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), enacted on July 26, 1990, and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 provide protections to individuals with disabilities in the areas of employment, state and local government services, public accommodations and telecommunications.
Title II of the ADA prohibits all state and local governments from discriminating on the basis of disability, but moreover, its goal is to promote equal access and full participation. The City of Henderson works to ensure that every program, service, benefit, activity and facility operated or funded by the City of Henderson is accessible to people with disabilities. The City strives to eliminate barriers that may prevent persons with disabilities from accessing our facilities or participating in City programs, services and activities.
The City’s ADA Coordinator is responsible for supporting Henderson’s efforts to comply with the ADA and the Rehabilitation Act. The ADA Coordinator is available to answer questions from both the public and City employees about accommodating persons with disabilities.
Accommodation is available to ensure that individuals with disabilities can participate. If you have any questions about accessibility to employment, programs or services with the City of Henderson, require information be provided in a different format or translated, please contact the ADA Coordinator:
