Accesibility

The CITY OF EL PASO is committed to making "http://www.elpasotexas.gov" accessible to all users. Reasonable efforts will be made to accommodate all users who utilize standards compliant web browsers as well as enabling software or assistive devices. We welcome comments on how to improve the site’s accessibility for users with disabilities.


Standard for Compliance
Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, sets forth guidelines for developing and maintaining accessible information technology. Section 508 was enacted to eliminate barriers in information technology, to make available new opportunities for people with disabilities, and to encourage development of technologies that would help achieve these goals. The law applies to all federal agencies when they develop, procure, maintain, or use electronic and information technology. Though not specifically bound by this federal legislation, the CITY OF EL PASO has chosen to use Section 508 as the standard for accessibility compliance for "http://www.elpasotexas.gov". The City of El Paso is presently redesigning this website to include promote greater accessibility for users utilizing assistive technologies.
