The City of Weston is committed to the universal accessibility of information contained on its website (Website). The design of the Website is optimized to ensure broad readability and usability, which include accessibility criteria and features for people with disabilities, so they may be able to see, understand, navigate, interact, and contribute to the Website effectively.

The Website is currently a combination of new and old technologies, and new and existing content. The Website Home Page and supporting web pages are compliant with  Section 508 of the United States Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, and the Americans with Disabilities Act (together, Guidelines). However, the Website contains links to departmental, agency and third-party websites and features that may not be in compliance with the Guidelines. Some existing content may meet only the minimum required compliance standards. This will be resolved as departments and others update their existing documents and websites and continue efforts to monitor and maintain acceptable compliance levels. However, this may not include third party software/tools, search engines, widgets, Add Ins, APIs, etc. which the City does not maintain or control.

If you use assistive technology (such as a Braille reader, a screen reader, or TTY) and the format of any material on this website interferes with your ability to access information, please email or contact us at 954-385-2000.   To enable us to respond in a manner most helpful to you, please indicate the nature of your accessibility problem, the preferred format in which to receive the material, the web address of the requested material, and your contact information. Users who need accessibility assistance can also contact us by phone through the Federal Information Relay Service at 1-800-877-8339 for TTY/Voice communication.

Cascading Style Sheets (CSS)

The Portal web pages are designed with style sheets that allow a consistent, uniform appearance of headings and body text. This design feature also enables some browsers to override the Portal style sheets with their own, thus providing content that is easier viewed by those who have visual impairments. 

High Contrast buttonColor Contrast

The background and foreground colors on the Portal web pages provide sufficient contrast to be viewable by someone having color deficits. Additionally, the website can be toggled into a high contrast view by clicking the Accessibility icon in the upper right corner of the website.
