         In accordance with the requirements of Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 ("ADA"), the Charter Township

         tices and complies with all regulations promulgated by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission under Title II of
         the ADA.
         Effective Communication: The Charter Township of Canton will generally, upon request, provide appropriate aids and services
         leading to effective communication for qualified persons with disabilities so they can participate equally in the Charter Township
