The Monroe City Council approved a resolution that will allow Monroe Mayor Jamie Mayo to help fund the Chennault Aviation and Military History Museum.
Due to state budget cuts, this museum was one out of many across the state that lost its state funding.
Museum Director Nell Calloway said the funding is necessary to keep the museum running.
“Without your support, without the community’s support and without the city’s support, Mayor, we cannot continue to do what we do,” Calloway said.
Mayor Mayo wants to include $35,000 in the 2016-2017 budget to fund the facility.
He said the museum is an important part of our local, state and national history.
