Liz’s Lift is a portable wheelchair lift and ramp system made possible by the generosity of Elizabeth “Liz” Oilar Memorial Contributions, the White County Board of Health, the White County Community Foundation-Women Giving Together Grant, the Monticello City Council, the Rotary Club of Monticello, Quality Construction (Chad Crain Owner), all City Departments, and the City of Monticello Mayor’s Advisory Council for the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

Liz was a founding member of the Mayor’s Advisory Council, and was dedicated to making sure all of our citizens have access to community events, and so it is just & fitting that we dedicate this wheelchair lift in her memory, providing access & opportunity where had been none.

This portable wheelchair lift is available to any entity in White County where temporary accommodation is necessary and requested. Scheduling is handled through the ADA Coordinator at 574-583-4568
This community offers an enchanting atmosphere of friendliness and fun augmented and reflected by two beautiful, accessible lakes.  The city's impressive tourism assets, diverse economic base and dynamic leadership make it a gem to any target, whether it is a business, visitor or potential resident.

It's no wonder that a city built to hug the sides of two lakes reflects so many lakeside attributes.  It is a serene community with a high quality of life.  It is safe, accommodating and never feels rushed.  It is a place where you won't feel weighed down by big city pressures, and instead have the time to enjoy what is most important in life.  While it does have this calming side to it, Monticello, like its lakes, is also a place of unbridled fun.  It is filled with the energy of youth whether it be from families playing at Indiana Beach, new leadership, or young adults starting their education at Ivy Tech.  There is both a wonderful calm and sparkling energy here.
