In September 2021, the Rural Engagement Project brought together city, county, state and federal leadership to address a brewing crisis in the City of Monroe. Through that meeting and subsequent communications, Monroe has been able to secure the funding it needs for new water and waste water treatment systems that will bring them into compliance with state and federal regulations and keep clean drinking water available to its residents.
A special thank you goes to House District 23 Representative Anna Scharf for her thorough and thoughtful work on behalf of the City of Monroe and her partnership with the Rural Engagement Project. Thanks also go to Benton County Commissioners Xan Augerot, Pat Malone, and Nancy Wyse for their dedication to serving the people of Monroe and Benton County.
