New signs have been placed at the Monett city limits with the population count tallied by the 2010 federal census.

The count of 8,873 reflected an increase of 1,477 from the 2,000 census. The increase was the largest in a single decade since the first count in Monett of 1,699 in 1890 jumped to 3,115 by 1900.
