Topic:              A Resolution Authorizing the Establishment of a Citizen’s Complaint Procedure Regarding Charges of ADA Discrimination as Related to County Programs and Services

Fauquier County Government adheres to the provisions of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) which states, in part, that “no otherwise qualified disabled individual shall, solely by reason of such disability, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination” in programs or activities sponsored by a public entity.  To formalize compliance efforts, the Disabilities Services Board advocates County adoption of a complaint procedure which provides for prompt and equitable resolution of complaints by citizens alleging discriminatory action prohibited by Federal, State and local law or policy.  To this end, a citizen complaint procedure is submitted to the Board of Supervisors for approval and adoption consideration.
