Title VI | Nondiscrimination| ADA Plan
“In order to plan for efficient, effective, safe, equitable and reliable transportation systems, the County must have the input of its public. The County spends extensive staff and financial resources in furtherance of this goal and strongly encourages the participation of the entire community. Any person may attend any Board of County Commissioner (BOCC) Meeting including Committee Meetings and speak during the Public Comment portion of the agenda concerning a matter of the BOCC business or concern of the person. Persons should check the BOCC’s website at www.nassaucountyfl.com for a list of scheduled meetings and agendas. Persons may also call the County Administrator’s Office to receive a calendar of upcoming meetings. Meeting location is accessible to the disabled. The BOCC and/or staff members also attend other Community meetings as necessary or when invited.
The Nassau County Board of County Commissioners (County) values diversity and welcomes input from all interested parties, regardless of cultural identity, background or income level. Moreover, the County believes that the best programs and services result from careful consideration of the needs of all of its communities and when those communities are involved in the transportation decision making process. Thus, the County does not tolerate discrimination in any of its programs, services or activities. Pursuant to Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964and other federal and state authorities, the County will not exclude from participation in, deny the benefits of, or subject to discrimination anyone on the grounds of race, color, national origin, sex, age, disability, religion, income or family status.
Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (Section 504), the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) and related federal and state laws and regulations forbid discrimination against those who have disabilities. Furthermore, these laws require federal aid recipients and other government entities to take affirmative steps to reasonably accommodate the disabled and ensure that their needs are equitably represented in transportation programs, services and activities.”
