MONROE - After discussing how the Greenwood Cemetery Board can more efficiently operate its facility, Monroe Common Council members proposed that the city help offset expenditures by taking on tasks like bookkeeping or lawn care. Alderman Michael Boyce suggested the idea after hearing from City Administrator Phil Rath, who told the council during a special meeting Wednesday that the city supplied $48,950 to the cemetery from the 2017 budget. "I don't foresee the city contribution going down anytime soon," Rath said.
