The Monticello Street Department will be milling many of the alleys in the city on August 7 & 8, followed by two layers of chip/seal. In preparation for the large machinery required to do this project, the Street Department will be trimming all trees and shrubs that are in the right of way, so the machines can get through.
The City of Monticello Street Dept. will begin spraying for mosquitos on Tuesday July 25, 2023 weather permitting, if weather will not allow us to spray that evening, then spraying will be moved to the next evening. The Street Dept. will spray the City limits once a week as weather allows for the next several weeks. Spraying will be done during the evening hours. The spray trucks will spray the alleys where available and the streets where there is no alley. If you do not want the area by your home sprayed please call the Monticello Street Dept. at (574) 583- 7033.
The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) has stated due to the traffic problems caused by the NIPSCo gas line relocation at Gordon Rd., Airport Rd., and US-421, the decision has been made to close Gordon and Airport Roads at that intersection.
- Gordon and Airport Rd. Intersection will be closed.
- Affected residents south of the intersection may use new County Rd. 225 S to enter/exit the area.
- The traffic lights will be bagged and South Main/US-421 will be free flowing traffic with some lane restrictions as work progresses.
We do not have an exact day when this will happen, within the next two weeks, and could last as long as 2 months.

The City of Monticello and the Monticello Fire Department are excited to announce the creation of the Mobile Integrated Healthcare Program also known as the Community Paramedicine Program.
The Mobile Integrated Healthcare Program fills the gaps that are prevalent in healthcare, especially in more rural and aging communities. It works to meet the quadruple aim for healthcare which includes:
- Better outcomes
- Improved patient experience
- Improved clinician experience
- Lower healthcare costs
- Increased access and communication with primary care physicians for the medically underserved
- Help with chronic disease management
- Prioritize preventive care and follow up care for high-risk members of our community
- Assist patient communication with their provider
- Post hospital discharge instruction compliance
- Monitor vital signs
- Provide cardiac monitoring
- Diabetes management
- Fall risk assessment & prevention/in-home safety checks
- Immunizations including influenza and COVID-19 for homebound patients
- Evaluating and assisting patients with individual needs
In 2021, The Monticello Fire Department and Indiana University Health White Memorial Hospital collaborated on the Community Paramedicine Program pilot project. During the 6-month pilot program Monticello Fire Department saw 50 patients and had a 100% non-readmittance rate.
After the program’s success the West Central Region of IU Health agreed to provide first year funding to establish and sustain this program until further funding can be achieved. The commitment by our local IU Health White Memorial Hospital team under the guidance of President Mary Minier and Chief Nursing Officer Renea Smith connected our Community Paramedic Team, FF/Paramedic Chad Walther, and FF/Paramedic Nick Green with the families and individuals that would benefit most from this program.
The Mobile Integrated Healthcare program also received financial support from the Indiana State Department of Health and IU Health White Memorial Hospital. Our Community Paramedic(s) will be working with other funding agencies and grantors to provide necessary support moving forward.
This partnership provides our community with another resource to improve overall community health.

The City of Monticello is now accepting applications/resumes for the position of Payroll Clerk/2nd Deputy. Applications may be picked up at the Clerk Treasurer's Office at 124 W. Washington St., Monticello, IN 47960. See the description below.
A third-party bill payment service called DOXO has gained the unfavorable attention of utility cooperatives. City of Monticello Utility customers may be misled while searching the Internet for the City of Monticello Utilities bill payment service. DOXO's payment pages are using the City of Monticello Utilities name WITHOUT PERMISSION, giving it the appearance of an official payment site.
DOXO will charge the member extra fees for processing their transactions, and City of Monticello Utilities cannot control when we will receive the member's payment from DOXO. This may result in a late payment from the member or even disconnection due to non-payment.
City of Monticello Utilities official online payment service link is located on the website through invoiceCloud. There are no fees to use these services, payments made through them are secure, and are reflected on your account immediately.
If you make online payments using any other services, use caution. Investigate before paying to make sure the service is legitimate, and inquire about any additional fees you may be required to pay.
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.

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!
