Supes to vote on requiring departments to offer more ADA services 

On Thursday, the Board of Supervisors Rules Committee is scheduled to vote on legislation introduced by Supervisor Michela Alioto-Pier that would require city departments to “provide appropriate auxiliary aids and services to people with disabilities to ensure effective communication.”

That would include such “communication assistance” as interpreters, note takers, computer-aided transcription services, audio-recordings, large print and Braille materials and assistive listening systems “to ensure that The City will be able to communicate effectively with individuals with disabilities, and that individuals with disabilities will be able to participate in the range of services and programs offered by The City.”

Alioto-Pier has been away from City Hall due to an injury and is expected to return as early as next week.

The Rules Committee meets Thursday at 10 a.m. at City Hall in Room 263.
