The new website has more photos on the home page that focus on city attractions, living here and business. Also features top city of Monroe news stories and email alert signups.

"We continue to tweak the site to be as informative as it can be. Its taken over a year to get the site up and running as a portion of the actual fabrication of the site was done by Brandon. I am very proud of the end result. Mr Burklow should also be commended, its obvious he is turning out some very talented students." said Councilman Bob Kelley who was in charge of the website project.

Brandon Wright works for RCH Networks, Inc. who also hosts the city website.
