Welcome

Welcome to the City of West Monroe’s official website.  We have made a special effort to make this site easy to use, informative and comprehensive.  Whether you are a resident or a visitor to the community, it is important to us that you feel at home.

Since its establishment in 1883, West Monroe has prided itself as being a safe, fiscally responsible City with a small town atmosphere and big city amenities. Throughout the community, you’ll still find neighbors visiting after Sunday services and picnicking in the park. You’ll also find Louisiana’s first nationally accredited police force, major food and retail chains, and innovative programs to preserve both our environment and culture. West Monroe-it’s the place you’ve been hoping to find.

While we believe this website can answer most of your questions, in some cases there is no substitute for personal contact.  Feel free to give us a call here at City Hall (318-396-2600) for any additional help you may need.  Thanks for going online with us.

International Environmental Award Presented to West Monroe’s Sparta Reuse Facility
 
West Monroe, LA – The internationally based Green Organization has awarded a 2016 Green Apple Silver Award to the City of West Monroe’s Sparta Reuse Facility for Best Environmental Practice. The presentation Ceremony was held on November 11th in London, England at the House of Commons, Palace of Westminster.
 
On behalf of the City of West Monroe and Mayor Dave Norris, Terry Emory, West Monroe Environmental Quality Manager, traveled to London, England to receive the award.
 
“Mayor Dave Norris has championed the development of the Sparta Reuse Facility’s sustainable water technology since the middle of the 1990s. We are extremely proud of the innovative, water-recycling technology we have developed at the Sparta Reuse Facility. Without Mr. Norris’ substantial support and encouragement we would not be where we are today,” Terry Emory said. “By building and maintaining this facility the City of West Monroe has helped stabilize the Sparta Aquifer for the residents of Northeast Louisiana for years to come.”

This is the ninth national award and second international award presented to the Sparta Reuse Facility.

The Green Apple Environment Awards were launched in 1994 by The Green Organization and have been recognized as one of the preeminent environmental awards in the world. The Green Apple Awards are one of the only international environmental awards to meet the demanding criteria of the European Commission’s European Business Awards for the Environment. The Sparta Reuse Facility received the Best Environmental Practice Utilities for Sustainable Water Management Silver award.
