BACKGROUND

A. SCOPE OF THE INVESTIGATION

The United States Department of Justice (“Department”) initiated this matter as a compliance review of the City of Savannah, Georgia (“City”) under Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (“ADA”), 42 U.S.C. §§ 12131-12134, and the Department’s implementing regulation, 28 C.F.R. Part 35. Because the City receives financial assistance from the Department of Justice, the review was also conducted under the authority of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, 29 U.S.C. § 794, and the Department’s implementing regulation, 28 C.F.R. Part 42, Subpart G.

The review was conducted by the Disability Rights Section (“DRS”) of the Department’s Civil Rights Division and focused on the City’s compliance with the following provisions of Title II:

The Department limited its program access review to those of the City’s programs, services, and activities that are provided in the following facilities: City Hall, the City Hospitality Center, the Visitor’s Center at the Savannah Exposition Properties, the Gamble Building, the Broughton Municipal Building, Fire Department Headquarters and certain specified substations, Police Headquarters and precincts, the Recorder’s Court located in the Chatham County Courthouse Judicial Center, the Civic Center, the Bonaventure Cemetery, City parking facilities, and various parks, athletic complexes, swimming pools and community centers throughout the City.

Those facilities not subject to this program access review are subject to this Agreement only as set forth herein. This Agreement does not however, limit the responsibility of the City to operate the programs and services offered in those facilities in a manner compliant with Title II, nor does it in any way limit the rights of the Department to investigate these programs and services in the future or subject them to other enforcement activities if the Department believes such action is warranted.

The parties to this Agreement are the United States of America and the City of Savannah, Georgia. In order to avoid the burdens and expenses of an investigation and possible litigation, the parties hereby agree as follows:

B. JURISDICTION

1. The ADA applies to the City because it is a “public entity” as defined by Title II. 42 U.S.C. § 12131(1); 28 C.F.R. § 35.104.

2. The Department is authorized under 28 C.F.R. Part 35, Subpart F, to determine whether the City is in compliance with Title II of the ADA and the Department’s regulation implementing Title II, to issue findings and, where appropriate, to negotiate and secure a voluntary compliance agreement to bring the City into compliance with Title II. Furthermore, the Attorney General is authorized, under 42 U.S.C. § 12133, to bring a civil action enforcing Title II of the ADA should the Department fail to secure voluntary compliance.

3. The Department is also authorized under 28 C.F.R. Part 42, Subpart G, to determine whether City is in compliance with section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and its relevant implementing regulations, to issue findings, and, where appropriate to negotiate and secure voluntary compliance agreements to bring the City into compliance with the Rehabilitation Act. Furthermore, the Attorney General is authorized, under 29 U.S.C. § 794 and 28 C.F.R. §§ 42.530 and 42.108-110, to suspend or terminate financial assistance to the City should the Department fail to secure voluntary compliance pursuant to Subpart G or to bring a civil suit to enforce the Rehabilitation Act.

NOTICE

UNDER THE

AMERICANS WITH

DISABILITIES ACT

In accordance with the requirements of title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, the City of Savannah (City) will not discriminate against qualified individuals with disabilities on the basis of disability in the City’s services, programs, or activities.

The City does not discriminate on the basis of disability in its hiring or employment practices. The City will not ask a job applicant about the existence, nature, or severity of a disability. Applicants may be asked about their ability to perform specific job functions. Medical examinations or inquiries may be made, but only after a conditional offer of employment is made and only if required of all applicants for the position. The City will make reasonable accommodations for the known physical or mental limitations of a qualified applicant or employee with a disability upon request unless the accommodation would cause an undue hardship on the operation of the City’s business. Any employee’s medical records will be retained separate from personnel files and kept confidential. The City will make an individualized assessment of whether a qualified individual with a disability meets selection criteria for employment decisions. To the extent its selection criteria have the effect of disqualifying an individual because of disability, those criteria will be job-related and consistent with business necessity.

The City will provide appropriate auxiliary aids and services, including qualified sign language interpreters and assistive listening devices, whenever necessary to ensure effective communication with members of the public who have hearing, sight, or speech impairments, unless to do so would result in a fundamental alteration of its programs or an undue administrative or financial burden. A person who requires an accommodation or an auxiliary aid or service to participate in a City program, service, or activity, should contact the office of Carol Bell, the ADA Coordinator, at 912-651-6401 (voice) and 912-651-3164 (TDD or relay) as far in advance as possible but no later than 48 hours before the scheduled event.

The City can be reached by telecommunications devices for the deaf (TDD) at 912-651-3010 and also through the BellSouth Relay Service at 912-780-2274 (TDD).

Complaints that a City program, service, or activity is not accessible to persons with disabilities should be directed to Carol Bell.

The City will not place a surcharge on a particular individual with a disability or any group of individuals with disabilities to cover the cost of providing auxiliary aids/services or reasonable modifications of policy, such as retrieving items from locations that are open to the public but are not accessible to persons who use wheelchairs.
