Whom do I contact?

Individuals protected by Title VI and/or the ADA who believe they have been discriminated against may file a complaint with the City’s Ombudsman/Title VI-ADA Co-Coordinator at the Mayor’s office. A complaint can be filed using the online form under the Informational Links on the ACTION Center or by contacting the Ombudsman. Individuals are not required to use this form; a letter with the same information is sufficient. However, the information requested in the items marked with a star (*) must be provided, whether or not the form is used. Individuals who are unable to complete written forms may make their complaints verbally to the Ombudsman by phone or in person.

The response will explain the position of the City, and, where appropriate, offer options for substantive resolution of the complaint.
