ADA Compliance and Education
Access to civic life by people with disabilities is a fundamental goal of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). To ensure this goal is met, Title II of the ADA requires the City of Manhattan and other State and local governments make their programs and services accessible to persons with disabilities. An important part of ensuring compliance is providing training to city employees so they maintain a high level of awareness with regard to the city’s requirements and obligations.
The City of Manhattan does not discriminate on the basis of disability in admission to, access to, or operations of its programs, services, or activities. The City of Manhattan does not discriminate on the basis of disability in its hiring or employment practices. This notice is provided as required by Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. Individuals who require auxiliary aids and services for effective communication in programs, activities, and services of the City of Manhattan are invited to make their requirements and preferences known to the ADA Coordinator as soon as possible,but no later than 48 hours before the scheduled event.
For information or assistance regarding the Americans with Disabilities Act, please contact the ADA Coordinator / Human Resources Specialist, Robyn Dreher at 785-587-2443 or email.

- Our church is building a new activities center, and some members of the building committee are saying we must install an elevator if we have a two-story building. Are elevators required by the ADA?
