The Monmouth City Council met Monday night. Among the topics discussed was a housing study and the upcoming audit. The housing study would result in a new housing complex, which Mayor Rod Davies believes is a much-needed addition to Monmouth.
“I think we seem to be on the tipping point of a couple expansions. I think there is job creation to drive it, and there is certainly some pent up demand for housing,” Davies stated.
The new housing complex would possibly be located north of Monmouth on seven and a half acres of city-owned property. The houses would most likely cost between $100,000 and $200,000.
The upcoming audit will be performed by the Wipfli accounting firm of Sterling on April 30. This will be the firm’s third year performing the city’s audit. The cost for the audit is $27,000.
“That will set us up to make sure we are ready to go when they want to begin field work at the end of our fiscal year,” Davies said.
