Q: In expectation of falling revenues (such as stated shared revenue) and increasing costs (such as health care and pension plans costs), what should the City of Monroe do to balance its budget next year?A: There is no easy, two-sentence fix to the budget. It requires very careful examination so the result is fair to all the dedicated city employees and property owners. It must provide the city with adequate funds to allow the continuance of the necessary services and functions as well as to help promote growth both downtown and citywide.Q: Equalized property values in Monroe's five Tax Increment Districts (TID) fell about $6 million total last year.
