MONROE - On Aug. 15, 2016, Monroe city staff picked up their previously packed necessities, moved out of City Hall and into a variety of municipal buildings throughout town. Meant to be gone for six weeks, the municipal employees are still scattered, accommodating the inconvenience by traveling more and accessing files by digging through storage trailers parked behind the building. City Clerk Carol Stamm crammed numerous folders and supplies into a four- by six-foot space and a small desktop at the westside fire station, sharing a small room with Deputy Clerk Nicole Cummings.
