In 1904, the Water, Light, and Gas Commission was formed with the mission of providing water and ice service to the citizens of Monroe. The Water, Light, and Gas Commission was a five member utility commission appointed by the City Council. Soon after it's inception, wastewater services were added to their mandate. In the 1920's, our first electrical grid was laid down and service was provided to the City. Natural Gas service followed in the 1950's. Cable television service was added in the 1970's, followed by cable internet service in the late 1990's.
In 1999 the Water, Light, and Gas Commission unified all city owned and operated utilties under the Monroe Utilities Network.
In 2005, the Water, Light, and Gas Commission was abolished and Utilities was folded into the general city government as a combined department.
The Monroe Combined Utilities Department is a full service municipal utility provider, offering its customers electric, cable television, broadband cable internet, voice over IP phone service, natural gas, water, and wastewater services.
