Local Alerts?

Forgive me if this has been covered before, I could not find it in the archives.

I’m testing an install of monit (linux x64 v5.12.1) and i’m running into an 
issue with alerting.

I would like to set a local alert for a specific service. I follow the 
instructions at 
for the local alert.
When I test the config with monit -t I get a syntax error. 

below is the check process line I have that is causing the error:
check process apache with pidfile /var/run/httpd/
#       start "/etc/init.d/httpd start"
#       stop  "/etc/init.d/httpd stop"
        if failed host <hostname> port 8080
          protocol apache-status  replylimit > 75%
          then alert address@hidden with reminder on 10 cycles 

The error is:
/etc/monit.d/apache.mon:8: syntax error 'address@hidden

I’d like to tailor my alerts so that certain people get alerts for certain 
Commenting everything out after the alert command will work, but send to the 
global alert address

Additionally is there a method to have some sort of hierarchy for the alerts?
So User1 gets alerted on initial failure, and every 10 minutes. User2 gets 
alert after 15 minutes of down state, User3 gets alert after 30 minutes.
I was thinking that you could put and if in the then portion of the check
something like
if failed
alert User1
if failed for 15 cycles alert User2
if failed for 30 cycles alert User3
