The Village of Wellington is committed to serving the needs of all of its residents and visitors, and our goal is to ensure access to information for a diverse audience. To that end, the Village has incorporated into its website accessibility design standards to meet Universal Design concepts supported by the W3C Guidelines and ADA Accessibility Requirements.
ADA Notice of Compliance
In accordance with the requirements of Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990, the Village of Wellington does not discriminate on the basis of disability in the admission, access, or operations of its programs, services, activities, or facilities. In accordance with Title II of the ADA, when viewed in their entirety, Wellington programs, services, activities, and facilities are readily accessible to and usable by qualified individuals with disabilities.
The Village of Wellington has established an ADA Coordinator to facilitate assistance for disabled residents and visitors. The ADA Coordinator is able to facilitate members of the public with the provision of auxiliary aids and services for Village meetings, programs, and events. The ADA Coordinator also investigates and seeks to resolve any complaints regarding accessibility to Village facilities or programs.

ADA Accommodations to Village Events
Persons with disabilities may contact the Village’s ADA Coordinator to request reasonable accommodation and/or wheelchair and/or wheelchair companion seating to fully participate in any Village event.
Americans with Disabilities Act Grievance Procedure
The Village of Wellington has established a discrimination complaint procedure and will take prompt and reasonable action to investigate and eliminate discrimination when found. Any person who believes that he or she has been subjected to discrimination based upon race, color, national origin, sex, religion, age, disability or family status in any Village program, service or activity may file a complaint with the Village's ADA Coordinator listed above.
If possible, the complaint should be submitted in writing and contain the identity of the complainant; the basis for the allegations (i.e., race, color, national origin, sex, religion, age, disability or family status); and a description of the alleged discrimination with the date of occurrence. If the complaint cannot be submitted in writing, the complainant should contact the Title VI/ADA Coordinator for assistance.
The ADA Coordinator will respond to the complaint within thirty (30) calendar days and will take reasonable steps to resolve the matter. The Village ADA Coordinator has ‘easy access’ to the Village's Administration and is not required to obtain management or other approval to discuss discrimination issues with the administration.
Help Identify ADA Accessibility and Sidewalk Improvements
The Village of Wellington invites residents to identify and request accessibility improvements for the disabled to public sidewalks and intersections located within the Village's jurisdiction and control. The Village will include such locations on a prioritized list of sidewalk and intersection locations that require improvements to meet Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) guidelines.
Many Internet users with disabilities find websites difficult or even impossible to use simply because of the way they are designed. This website has been designed to be as accessible as possible and to be compatible with the types of adaptive technology used by people with disabilities, including screen readers. Visitors can control the size of the text and can use "access keys" on the keyboard rather than the mouse to navigate through pages.
The stylesheet uses relative font sizes and is written to display pages correctly in most commonly used browsers. In early versions of browsers and browsing devices that do not support stylesheets at all, the flow of the content has been tested to ensure it entirely retains its sense.
If you use assistive technology (such as a Braille reader, or a screen reader) and the format of any material on this website interferes with your ability to access information, please contact our ADA coordinator. To enable us to respond in a manner most helpful to you, please indicate the nature of your accessibility problem, the preferred format in which to receive the material, the web address of the requested material, and your contact information.
Browser Accessibility Information
Supported Assistive Technology
Many documents on our web pages are in ASCII or HTML format, which are accessible to people who use screen reading software and to those with other vision or mobility impairments. Generally, we use Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) to create pages and documents that are accessible to those users.
Our website also contains many Adobe Acrobat PDF (Portable Document Format) files. We use this method when documents are not available in digital form, are too large or difficult to produce in HTML, or are publications where the format is critical to the usability of the document. Adobe Systems, Inc. is developing products designed to make PDF documents more accessible. Adobe's accessibility web pages describe their efforts.
- Be sure to select the version of Adobe Acrobat Reader that is compatible with your system.
- Follow the installation instructions completely. (After the download, you will need to install the file by running the executable (.exe file) from your operating system.)
- Configure your browser options.
- Upgrade your version of Adobe Acrobat Reader periodically to use the latest features.
- Contact Adobe Systems, Inc. if you are having trouble installing or using their products.
