Americans with Disabilities Act Notice (ADA)
In accordance with the requirements of title II of the Americans with Disabilities
Act of 1990, the County will not discriminate against qualified individuals with disabilities
on the basis of disability in the County's services, programs, or activities.
Employment: The County does not discriminate on the basis of disability in its hiring or
employment practices and complies with all regulations promulgated by the U.S. Equal Employment
Opportunity Commission under title I of the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA).
Effective Communication: The County will generally, upon request, provide appropriate aids
and services leading to effective communication for qualified persons with disabilities so they
can participate equally in the County's programs, services, and activities, including qualified
sign language interpreters, documents in Braille, and other ways of making information and
communication accessible to people who have speech, hearing, or vision impairments.
Modifications to Policies and Procedures: The County will make all reasonable modifications
to policies and programs to ensure that people with disabilities have an equal opportunity to
enjoy all County programs, services, and activities. For example, individuals with service
animals are welcomed in County offices, even where pets are generally prohibited.
Anyone who requires an auxiliary aid or service for effective communication, or a modification
of policies or procedures to participate in a County program, service, or activity, should
contact the office of the ADA Coordinator, Anne Hughes, at 406-258-3160, as soon as
possible but no later than 48 hours before the scheduled event.
The ADA does not require the County to take any action that would fundamentally alter the
nature of its programs or services, or impose an undue financial or administrative burden.
Complaints that a County program, service, or activity is not accessible to persons with
disabilities should be directed to Anne Hughes, ADA Coordinator at 406-258-3160.
The County will not place a surcharge on a particular individual with a disability or
any group of individuals with disabilities to cover the cost of providing auxiliary aids/services
or reasonable modifications of policy, such as retrieving items from locations that are open
to the public but are not accessible to persons who use wheelchairs.
