Effective Communication: The City of Lebanon 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 City of Lebanon's programs, services and activities.
Modifications to Policies and Procedures: The City of Lebanon will make all reasonable modifications to policies and programs to ensure that people with disabilities have equal opportunity to enjoy all of its programs, services, and activities.
