Can I help guide local decisions?

Yes. Annexation would give new City residents a voice in the government of the larger community in which they live. Annexation means new residents will be able to vote on tax increase requests involving emergency services and elect City Council members. Additionally, you would be eligible to be on Monroe’s boards and commissions, including the Planning Commission, the Civil Service Commission, the Economic Development Advisory Board, and the Park Board.
