There will be a Called City Council meeting at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, July 16, 2019, at Monroe City Hall, 215 North Broad Street. The purpose of the meeting is to discuss the 2019 Millage Rate and Tax Digest.
Last year, the City of Monroe dropped the millage rate to 7.277 mills, .144 less than 2017. This was due to the increase in the tax digest which would have meant that had the millage rate not been lowered, it would have reflected a tax increase. Staff had recommended that the city adopt the full rollback rate for 2018 to avoid a tax increase.
