City hall could get makeover
Placeholder Image
MONROE - The face of Monroe's city hall is in need of some repairs - more than just cosmetic, and the building needs better accessibility, not just for the disabled but for everyone, according to City Administrator Phil Rath and Public Works Director Colin Simpson. City aldermen for several years have been eyeing the crumbling cement steps and brick mortar, especially on the hall's front entrances, and have approved small stop-gap measures, such as tuckpointing. Now the Board of Public Works is ready to take a look at an overall design plan that Rath and Simpson say has the goal of increasing accessibility, security and energy efficiency in a building whose use has evolved over the past few years.
