We should do (or maybe we voted it down in the 70's) sewers on 111 and 25......that will cost moreRead Moret han $3 to every $1 cut......more like $10,000 now to every dollar they cut in the 1970's. Lets stop crying over spilled milk, understand the microeconomic problem we have in Monroe (lack of tax base with the hundred of vacancies of retail/commercial space), the loss of roughly 100 students a year in the school system and act like adults while using TOTAL FISCAL responsibility to keep the 15,000+ taxpayers from an ever increasing tax burden which includes all the mom & pop stores that continue to dwindle. (Yet we approve a 160,000 store without a name??)

Sewers come with what??? A sewer tax.Who would pay that tax? The users. Mom and Pops not dwindlingRead Morea s we have more of our past poorly planned strip malls filled than ever before. Or haven't you noticed all the grand openings lately? Or is it you like many others don't shop in Monroe as you haven't taken the time to see what's happening? And that unnamed store will bring other growth in that corridor as well? It's ok to be backwards thinking but learning facts helps. Unless you like to just be backwards and not listen.

Backwards Thinker - MPS did not have enough administrators to meet the new state requirement forRead Morethe teacher evaluation model. Department heads had to move over to the administrators contract. This new mandate requires all teachers to be evaluated multiple times. The district had to invest a large amount of time and money into administrator training to meet this new unfunded mandate.

Vera, you are in no position to criticize anybody. You are famous for making fun of children in the Read MoreCourier and on this Patch.

In your over zealous attempt to discredit Jane, you fail to acknowledge Jane's point-That JeffRead MoreGuttm an is an obnoxious simpleton who represents the Town of Monroe on both the BOE and RTC. That in itself is an embarrassment to the town.

I watched it. Guttman sounds like an idiot. Later in the meeting, that is after he got throughRead Morecom plaining about big words, he announced that he has a pistol permit. Just what we need another moron with a gun, and on the Board of Ed too. What the hell is happening to this town?

Vavrek is a Con Man. How is that for reporting, Jan? The reporting that was once done by a localRead Moreed itor can be picked up by readers if they would take time to write about something that affects Monroe. For example I wrote a piece in the Town Square section on how Steve Vavrek goes about scamming the public into paying higher taxes every year. If everyone would take some time to write about the various corruptions that permeate our town maybe we could make this a better place

Something tells me that the OP was not talking about political mud-slinging. I agree with the OPRead Morein that there is no longer any coverage of Board or Commission meetings, local sports, human interest stories things that only concern those of us that live here. Bill Bittar was everywhere, and I miss his coverage.

The newly proposed budget has a cut of just $120k, with a mill rate increase ofRead More2.2% http://monroec t.org/resources/2/14-15%20Budget/PUBLIC%20Proposed%202014-2015%20Annual%20Town%20of%20Monroe%20Budget%20for%20VOTE%20APRIL%2022%202014%202nd.pdf

Thanks Crown Royal, that's disappointing though.
Jebidiah Stone April 09, 2014 at 10:30 PM
Folks people from both parties said this was a great budget.....why cut it at all? It'sRead Morebasic...defe r some buying or make cuts in services being offered. Can't have it both ways can maintain services by cutting and aren't you tired of nickel and diming things and paying more to fix them after they break beyond repair...go head and slash the budget...nothing will ever get fixed right, more will fall apart but you people will be happy

Calling all Republicans and all Republican wannabes come out and support your man Vavrek and hisRead MoreTax Increase. Once his Tax Increase passes it will become your Tax Increase too and in that way you will be forever joined with your leader. Vote YES for higher Taxes!
