The City of Warrensburg's Accessibility Mission
It is the policy of the City of Warrensburg that no member of the public shall be discriminated against because of a mental or physical disability or medical condition while accessing the facilities, programs or services operated by the City of Warrensburg.
Americans With Disability Act
Title II of the Americans with Disability Act (A.D.A.), a federal law enacted on January 26, 1992, focuses on public services and transportation and requires that all facilities, programs, services and activities of public entities are designed to prohibit discrimination against any qualified individual with a disability.
The City of Warrensburg provides equal opportunity in employment and is committed to making reasonable accommodations for all qualified individuals, regardless of disability. All reasonable accommodations will be made to the extent that accessibility does not alter the fundamental nature of any service, program or policy or constitute an undue hardship on the City.
Grievance ProcedureAny citizen who believes they have been denied access to the facilities, services, activities, or programs of the City of Warrensburg on the basis of a disability may file a grievance. The grievance will be received by the City’s A.D.A. Coordinator for review and follow-up action.
Complaints should be submitted by the grievant and/or his/her designee as soon as possible but no later than 60 calendar days after the alleged violation.
A.D.A. Transition Plan
The evaluation of the City’s facilities and services for the Transition Plan began in June 2010 and was completed in October 2011. On December 14, 2011, the Transition Plan was made available to several stakeholder groups within the community including the Survival Adult Abuse Center, West-Central Independent Living Services, Johnson County Sheltered Workshop, Care Connection for Aging Services and the Warrensburg School District. On January 9, 2012, the Warrensburg City Council approved a resolution adopting the Transition Plan Update. The Transition Plan was again updated in 2016 and adopted by City Council on July 11, 2016.
During 2019, the City has again undertaken a process to update the Transition Plan. The Transition Plan Update can be viewed online or a hard copy can be viewed in the City Clerk’s office at City Hall, 102 S. Holden Street, Warrensburg, Missouri. Public comments regarding the Plan will be accepted until January 31, 2020, at 5:00 p.m.
