~Patrice Broughton, Customer/Community Relations Liaison
The Customer/Community Relations Liaison, housed in the Finance Department, has the primary responsibility for the City’s communication materials, but significant efforts are undertaken in other departments as well. For example, the Monroe Downtown and Monroe’s position as a Main Street Community are handled in the Downtown Development and Economic Development Department.
