Recently Kiryas Joel proposed breaking away from Monroe by creating a new town called North Monroe.

Why are they requesting it be called North Monroe?

Why not call it the Town of Kiryas Joel, or North Kiryas Joel.

If this proposal is ever approved, I would prefer the word Monroe be kept out of it. My house value has already plummeted in recent years and I think this would just make it worse.

I would hope that Monroe and county officials keep this in mind during their review of the proposal.
