There is hereby established an Americans with Disabilities Act Advisory Board for the Borough of Seaside Heights.
Persons employed by the Borough of Seaside Heights in a position provided by this chapter shall possess good health and freedom from disabling physical and mental defects which impair the proper performance of the required duties, or which might endanger the health and safety of oneself or others. Persons with mental or physical disabilities are eligible as long as they can perform the essential functions of the job position after reasonable accommodation is made to their known limitations. If the accommodation cannot be made because it would cause the employer undue hardship, such person may not be eligible.
The Americans with Disabilities Act Advisory Board shall consist of five regular members and two alternate members, designated as "Alternate No. 1" and "Alternate No. 2," appointed by the Mayor with the advice and consent of the Borough Council. The ADA Coordinator shall be appointed as a regular member of the ADA Advisory Board and shall be the Chairperson of the Board as provided for in § 21-3D.
