ADA Compliance

The City of Jacksonville Beach and Beaches Energy strives to serve the community through its website by providing accurate, timely, and helpful information that is readily accessible by all.

The City and Beaches Energy is working with its website design team to bring the site into compliance with ADA requirements and meeting the standards specified by Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.1 AA).

This process includes a full audit of the site to identify elements that are not ADA compliant and correct those deficiencies as well as ongoing frequent scans to identify areas that are noncompliant and correct them.

Accessibility Design Guidelines

Our website has been designed with the following accessibility guidelines in mind:

  • The standard font used throughout the site has been chosen to be easily legible.
  • Wherever possible, we use live text instead of graphics to reduce the download time of pages and increase your control.
  • No information is exclusively conveyed using color. This doesn't mean that colors are not used to organize information; instead it means there are also other, non-color dependent ways of doing this.
  • All images and hyperlinks, where appropriate, have an alternative text attribute. This means when an image or hyperlink is conveying important information its content is described with an alternative text.
  • We have attempted specifically to comply with Section 508 referring to website accessibility standards.
  • If you have difficulty accessing the site or have any comments or feedback, please do not hesitate to contact us.
