ADA / Section 504

The City of Port Saint Joe wants all of our citizens to participate in the programs, services, and activities offered by the government. Therefore, it is our policy to create an inclusive organizational environment as outlined in Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (Section 504) and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA). As a government entity, we are committed to empowering persons with disabilities to participate in the social and economic life of the community by eliminating physical and attitudinal barriers.

ADA / Section 504 Access Plan

The City has recently utilized grant funding for facility improvements to provide reasonable accommodations to persons with disabilities. To date, however, the City Commission Chambers remain a challenge for some persons to access. Meetings requiring special accommodation will be scheduled to be held in the Port St. Joe Fire Station Conference Room. Those persons needing such accommodation and wishing to attend City Commission or other meetings are urged to contact the City's 504/ADA Coordinator, Charlotte Pierce at 850-229-8261.
