MONROE - The city Finance and Taxation Committee voted Monday, Aug. 5 to finance up to $1 million to tear down the parking ramp downtown and replace it with a surface lot, as recommended by the Community Improvement Committee. How the city will finance that money is still undetermined. Mayor Bill Ross said he didn't think the project should be put off until after Cheese Days 2014; he wants the council to make a decision and move forward.
