NOTE: If your complaint is a by-law complaint, for example, a dog running a large or a noise complaint, do not use the below complaint process, instead email email@example.com. It will be much faster!
A complaint is an expression of dissatisfaction related to a program, facility, staff member, service, actions/non-actions or other. It is the goal of the Grey Highlands to resolve complaints informally, whenever possible.
And, things happen. Mistakes are made.
A complaint can be received in a number of different ways:
Verbal Complaints are made in person or by telephone.
Written Complaints can be made online using the online form or email the form to firstname.lastname@example.org or hand deliver to the Administration office, 206 Toronto Street South, Markdale, ON.
A Complaint form will be available both in office and online.
DISCLAIMER The staff at The Municipality of Grey Highlands are experts in their respective fields. If something here is different than staff's advice, always follow staff's direction. And, then please email me at email@example.com with what I got wrong.
