NEWS AND INFORMATION
The City of Monroe would like to encourage property owners to report non-city activity along sanitary sewer easements in order to help the City control dumping, vandalism and possible damage to City utilities. Operating All Terrain Vehicles on sanitary sewer easements is illegal without the expressed consent of the landowner on which the easement is located. City staff members ride along the easements to observe any potential problems with the wastewater collection system, City employees are uniformed and will present identification if requested. Anyone operating an ATV on a sanitary sewer easement without the permission of the landowner is trespassing. Residents are urged to contact the Monroe Police Department immediately at 704-282-4700 when they see illegal ATV operation on sanitary sewer easements or public streets.
The level at Lake Lee is approximately 30 inches below normal due to damage on the flashboard system. Until repairs can be completed, boaters should use caution when operating on the lake. Boating conditions may be hazardous due to submerged and floating debris. The repairs to the damaged Lake Lee dam flashboard system and associated log/debris catcher, caused during Hurricane Florence are being coordinated with FEMA. The City is working with engineers to design a new heavy-duty log/debris catcher system, award contracts for construction and installation in April, and complete the project by July/August.
