I hope everyone is aware that both the city and the school district will be asking the voters for hikes on property and possibly income taxes.

We need a new elementary school and police/fire station. So not only the cost of the building but also additional staff will be needed at a great cost to Monroe taxpayers.

The city is considering either a property tax or income tax issue. I would prefer the income tax because it only affects those working in Monroe. Many non residents will contribute to this tax.

The school is working on a bond issue with possibly some old bond retirement or consolidation.
