ADA Grievance Procedure
This grievance procedure is established to meet the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA). It may be used to file a complaint alleging discrimination on the basis of disability in the provision of services, activities, programs, or benefits by the City of Monticello.
The city's Personnel Policy governs employment-related complains of disability discrimination.
How to File a Complaint
The complaint should be in writing and contain information about the alleged discrimination, including name, address, and phone number of complainant as well as the location, date, and description of the problem.
