Getting Information About Monroe County
Our Outstanding Library System
When my Wife Marlyn and I moved to Monroe in August 1965 housing was scarce and we had little money. We were fortunate to rent a mobile home from Deputy Sheriff Bob Patterson in Pleasantville Mobile Home Park. This was a nice home and we soon had many friends in the park as well as the Monroe County Newcomers Association and especially welcomed into a local church as members.
The Monroe County Library System had many books we could barrow to learn about the community. At the time, the most helpful was Complan 2000 listing many issues that would influence growth. The information firmed up our decision to save money for a down payment for a modest home in The City of Monroe. This was a private transaction done on a handshake. The City Clerk and Assessor supplied information that all assessments were paid and improvements in as well as any outstanding taxes and easementsd of record.
The Monroe County Library System has an excellent web site http://monroe.lib.mi.us/ Today out of state residents as well as local citizens can obtain information quickly through the Internet using the Library's web site and other resources and many links, especially to county government.
