Complaint against city filed with Maine Human Rights Commission

ELLSWORTH — A person has filed a complaint against the city of Ellsworth with the Maine Human Rights Commission, interim City Manager Glenn Moshier said Friday at the City Council’s weekly morning finance meeting and workshop.

The complaint concerns using written correspondence rather than a sign language interpreter to communicate with someone and was filed by a member of the public on Nov. 9, Moshier said in a subsequent email to The American. He declined to outline the specific situation or situations the complaint is based on.

Complaints filed with the commission are confidential until the case is either administratively dismissed or is listed on a commission meeting agenda.

The Maine Municipal Association is providing legal assistance as part of Ellsworth’s insurance coverage.
