2. Accessibility Redress Process

We understand that despite our best efforts, users may still encounter accessibility issues. To address this, we have established a clear and easy-to-find process for requesting redress for inaccessible digital products. This process is designed to be accessible to all users, including those who may not have web access or who may face digital accessibility challenges.

Contact Options for Redress:

• Telephone: Please call us at 970-325-4616 M-F 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

• Mail: Written requests can be sent to PO Box 625 Ouray, CO 81427, where they will be promptly reviewed and addressed.

These contact options are prominently displayed on all front-facing web pages, ensuring they are easy to locate and access. Additionally, we commit to responding to all accessibility requests within 5 business days, providing updates on the resolution process.

3. Prominent Display of Accessibility Information

To further our commitment to accessibility, we ensure that all relevant accessibility information, including the progress-to-date report and contact options for redress, is prominently displayed on our front-facing web pages. This includes:

• Accessibility Statement: A link to our Accessibility Statement is located in the footer of every page, providing an overview of our commitment and efforts.
