I Want To Start a Business

The City of Monroe can offer guidance and direction to businesses that are just starting or relocating to the City.  However, the City of Monroe does not have the expertise or resources to help you create your new business or develop a business plan.  The City partners closely and provides funds to local community and business groups who provide the necessary assistance an individual or group may need.
