MONROE - Overrun trash and spilled oil from downtown businesses has caused concern among citizens and prompted action by city officials. During the Monroe Common Council meeting on June 21, local business owner Dave Gombosi stepped forward to request that the city look into the placement and upkeep of garbage containers along the Square alleyways. Gombosi said dumpsters for trash are not kept within a close distance to the buildings and are often overflowing or never used.
