Proposed Chamber contract would save city $20K
Placeholder Image
MONROE - A new contract between the city and the Monroe Chamber of Commerce for economic development services could help the city address a 2015 budget deficit to the tune of $20,000. The City of Monroe Finance and Taxation Committee is considering recommending that the city's contract with the Chamber be reduced from $35,000 to $5,000. Of that $30,000 difference, $10,000 would be used for economic development by existing city staff and the remaining $20,000 would be applied toward the city's projected 2015 deficit of $175,000.
