Our Commitment to Accessibility
Hastings Township is committed to making our website accessible to the widest possible audience, including individuals with disabilities. We strive to increase the accessibility and usability of our website as defined by the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 AA of the World Wide Web Consortium – Web Accessibility Initiative (W3C WAI).
Hasting Township will be evaluating this site on a regular basis and it will continue to evolve and improve over time as new technologies, guidelines and opportunities emerge.
Adobe PDF Files
At Hastings Township, we have paperwork and other documents in Adobe Acrobat® Portable Document Format (PDF). PDF format is used to preserve the content and layout of some of our hard copy publications. In order to improve the viewing of these files, please download the latest free version of Adobe Reader.
At Hastings Township, we are striving to convert each of our PDF’s documents into Accessible PDF’s with attached Accessibility Reports. Although, we cannot always guarantee the accessibility conversion of old hard copy publications. Due to this, we are more than happy to accommodate your paperwork requests or needs in-person at our office during normal business hours at 885 River Road, Hastings, MI, 49058.
People using screen-reading devices generally are unable to read documents directly in PDF format, unless they have an accessibility plug-in installed on their system along with the Adobe Acrobat Reader. We do ask that you please utilize the plug-in that is available at no charge from Adobe. This Adobe online tool will convert PDF files to HTML on request. To get the plug-in and latest news about Adobe’s accessibility tools and services, please visit the Access Adobe site.
