Paragraph 47 of the Agreement requires that regardless of other time frames set forth below, the County will carry out the required modifications to toilet rooms within three years of the effective date of this Agreement, with approximately 33% of the total toilet room renovations to be completed during each 12 month period.

 

Program Access in County Existing Facilities:  In order to ensure that each of the County's programs, services, and activities operating at a facility that is the subject of this Agreement, when viewed in its entirety, is readily accessible to and usable by persons with mobility impairments, the County will take the following actions:

 

A.        There are no public programs housed in the Old Administration Building at the current time.  If the County resumes use of this facility in a way that contemplates that members of the public will be expected to use it, before opening it for such use the County will complete the following modifications:
