A few changes will have to be made to the Grundy County Administration Building due to new state laws. Lawmakers passed a bill last year ensuring all single-occupancy restrooms are gender neutral. Supporters say this will benefit transgender people, parents taking their opposite-sex children to the bathroom and adults needing help from a caregiver.
Meanwhile, House Bill 3711 requires all public buildings with restrooms open to the public to have at least one baby diaper changing station accessible to both men and women.
Additionally, signage is required near the entrance indicating the location of the diaper changing station. The Grundy County Law and Justice/Facilities Committee on Thursday heard from County Administrator George Gray.
The committee also heard an update from Maintenance Director Tony Arnold.
It is unknown if other county buildings will have to make the changes.
