A proposed budget amendment to be considered at Tuesday night’s meeting of the Monroe City Council will, if approved, cut the Monroe Police Department and Monroe Fire Department budgets by over $1/2 million each.
The cuts are between four and five percent of the police department’s $13.3 million budget, and the fire department’s $13.4 million budget. The appear to be in the two department’s capital fund, which would be used to purchase equipment.
We will cover the 6:00 PM Tuesday, August 26 meeting at Monroe City Hall, 400 Lea Joyner Expressway, to see what is said about the budget amendments.
