Spring & Summer Projects? Call 811 ...

Do you have a Spring or Summer Project planned that requires digging? The City of Monticello and Departments urge residents to call 811 before starting any digging project. 811 is the national call-before-you-dig phone number. Anyone who plans to dig should call 811 or go to Indiana's 811 website before digging to request that the approximate location of buried utilities be marked with paint or flags so that you don't unintentionally dig into an underground utility line.

Have a great spring and summer! Remember Safety is in Your Hands.  Every Dig. Every Time.

1. Call 811


2. Visit Indiana 811 Website

Now Playing ... Monticello!

In our community, the downtown movie theater offers a unique opportunity for people to engage with each other. Many young people use the space to come together following a show making it a prime location for improvement. The Monticello Mayor's Youth Council and Next Generation Youth Advocates (NGYA) are participating in the My Community My Vision program and need your help to rejuvenate a small courtyard, setting the stage for a new and improved gathering space for our community.

This space will be designed by young people with a fresh perspective. By adding color and freshening up the space it will

  • invite people to stay a bit longer, visit more businesses and find more opportunities to connect.
  • be used as a nice lunch spot for surrounding business owners.
  • be used by families to gather and allow children to play on improved surfaces.
  • improve the safety of the area so that it can be accessible to all ages.

With your support, we can make this space the "star" of our downtown! To accomplish this we have started "A Creating Places Campaign" This campaign includes a matching grant from the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority!

Here's How YOU Can Help!

Make a donation today! Any amount helps. The Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority will provide a matching grant of $10,000 but only if we meet our goal! To give online just click here and choose a rewards level.
