Mayor's Message


SBA Administrator Isabella Casillas Guzman has announced the U.S. Small Business Administration will begin registrations on Friday, April 30, 2021, at 9 a.m. EDT and open applications on Monday, May 3, 2021, at noon EDT for the Restaurant Revitalization Fund. The online application will remain open to any eligible establishment until all funds are exhausted.

Established under the American Rescue Plan, the Restaurant Revitalization Fund provides a total of $28.6 billion in direct relief funds to restaurants and other hard-hit food establishments that have experienced economic distress and significant operational losses due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

This program will provide restaurants with funding equal to their pandemic-related revenue loss up to $10 million per business and no more than $5 million per physical location. Funds must be used for allowable expenses by March 11, 2023.

The SBA recommends qualifying applicants familiarize themselves with the application process in advance to ensure a smooth and efficient application experience, specifically by:
  • - Registering for an account in advance at starting Friday, April 30, 2021, at 9 a.m. EDT.
  • - Reviewing the official guidance, including program guide, frequently asked questions, and application sample.
  • - Preparing the required documentation.
  • - Working with a point-of-sale vendor or visiting to submit an application when the application portal opens.

[Note: If an applicant is working with a point-of-sale vendor, they do not need to register beforehand on the site.]

For the first 21 days that the program is open, the SBA will prioritize funding applications from businesses owned and controlled by women, veterans, and socially and economically disadvantaged individuals. All eligible applicants are encouraged to submit applications as soon as the portal opens. Following the 21 days, all eligible applications will be funded on a first-come, first-served basis. Consistent with the legislation and the intent of Congress, the SBA continues to take steps to ensure the equitable distribution of relief, particularly for the smallest businesses, by creating a $9.5 billion set-aside: $5 billion for applicants with 2019 gross receipts of not more than $500,000; $4 billion is set aside for applicants with 2019 gross receipts from $500,001 to $1,500,000; and $500 million for applicants with 2019 gross receipts not more than $50,000.

Frontier Fiber Optic Work
Occurring in the Village of Monroe

December 10, 2020

Good Afternoon Village of Monroe Residents,

Many of you may have already seen trucks in and around the Village of Monroe performing utility work in our neighborhoods and in our streets.

I would like to share with you that this company, SQUAN Solutions, has been contracted on behalf of Frontier Communications to run new fiber optic throughout the Village of Monroe and surrounding areas. There are multiple crews working in multiple areas within our community, and we are working on getting a better idea of where they have already completed work, where they will be working going forward and when. When we have more detailed information we will share it on the Village's website ( as well as through Constant Contact.

In many areas these fiber optic cables are being run underground and may result in the utility workers digging in the Village's right of ways. Any disturbance that may be created by this work will be remedied and replaced in kind. Please note that if it requires the replacement of grass, new seed will be planted in the spring when the weather conditions are more accommodating for seed germination.

Should you have any questions regarding this work or any other work that you see occurring in our Village, please do not hesitate to contact me at any time. I can be reached by calling the Village of Monroe's Clerk's Office at 782-8341.

Thank you for your patience and understanding while Frontier completes this much needed work.

Neil S. Dwyer
