ADA - Americans with Disabilities Act

Access to civic life by people with disabilities is a fundamental goal of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). To ensure that this goal is met, Title II of the ADA requires the City of Derby and other State and local governments make their programs and services accessible to persons with disabilities.  

The City of Derby does not discriminate on the basis of disability in admission to, access to, or operations of its programs, services, or activities. The City of Derby does not discriminate on the basis of disability in its hiring or employment practices. This notice is provided as required by Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. Individuals who require auxiliary aids and services for effective communication in programs, activities, and services of the City of Derby are invited to make their requirements and preferences known to the ADA Coordinator.  

Dan Bronson, Deputy City Manager, is the city's ADA coordinator. He works closely with the ADA Board in resolving problems and looking into disability-related complaints. ADA issues or requests may be submitted online, emailed to the ADA Coordinator, or given to the ADA Coordinator via phone at 316-788-3132 or in person at 611 Mulberry Rd. Suite 300.  

For services, programs, activities and facilities not associated with the City of Derby, please contact the State Attorney General’s Office at (785) 296-2215 or, or the U.S. Department of Justice at 1-800-514-0301 or

Hearing- and/or speech-impaired persons using a TDD/TTY may contact us through the Kansas Relay Center at 1-800-766-3777 or 711.
