Language Access

Interpreting Services

As part of the City's continued efforts to make City services accessible to all residents, the City will now be offering interpreting services to individuals who need language assistance. Residents who are hearing impaired, hard of hearing, or deaf are encouraged to contact the Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) Office in advance, to schedule an interpreter. Any questions, concerns, or complaints about the quality of interpreting services provided may be directed to the EEO Office.
