MONROE - The city will be trying a mix of deodorizing chemicals to help neutralize some of the smell coming from the wastewater treatment plant. The city has taken a "handful" of phone calls over the past few weeks about the foul odors coming from the treatment plant on the city's far west side, Colin Simpson, director of public works, told members of the city's Board of Public Works on Monday. Larry Kranig, who owns Monroe Sign Design on 4th Avenue West near the treatment plant, told the board the smell can be so strong he must keep doors closed.
