Maintenance Needs
Currently Monroe roads needs approximately $12 million in maintenance work:
Preventative Maintenance: $   360,000
Major Maintenance: $   415,000
Rehabilitation: $5,600,000
Reconstruction: $5,800,000


Proposition 1
The Monroe Transportation Benefit District Board has placed a proposal for a 0.2% sales tax increase on the August 5, 2014 ballot. The sales tax would be paid by everyone who shops in Monroe and uses Monroe streets, not just Monroe residents. If approved the measure would generate about $826,000 per year in revenue. The sales tax increase would automatically expire in 10 years.

Preservation Program
The funds generated by the sales tax increase will be used on preventing Monroe Roads from failing and to rehabilitate and reconstruct failed roadway segments. Currently, the funds collected are planned to be spent as shown in the the following table:
