The City of Monticello and the Mayor’s Advisory Council for the ADA Is proud to once again support Disability Awareness Month during the month of March.

ada logoPlans for Disability Awareness Month 2018 are well underway. Each year sponsors like you make our awareness month activities some of the best in the State of Indiana. This year we have even more engagement from the community, expanding some of our events, and reaching more and more of our citizens.

As always the City of Monticello is committed to being an accessible, responsive, community that welcomes and includes everyone. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) has become a useful tool in assuring that access changes are made and policies are developed to give people with all kinds of disabilities an equal opportunity to participate and benefit from community programs and activities.
