MONROE - Despite setbacks in the form of rain delays and low supply of certain necessary materials, the Monroe Dog Park officially opened Monday. Organizers Jeff Newcomer, Ryan Ziltner and Katherine Frey saw the result of their work come together over past months, though Newcomer was quick to credit city parks and recreation employees for their aid in making the park possible. "This was a lot of planning and hard work by a lot of people," Newcomer said.
