Mount Vernon News - 28 days ago


MOUNT VERNON — The City of Mount Vernon is preparing to assess property owners in the area of the Landings Subdivision for repairs to the Knox Cattleman’s Dam. Up for vote at Monday’s meeting of city council is a draw on the city’s reserve balance fund to fund repairs to the dam. Also Monday, council will vote whether to amend the city ordinance that allows for assessments on property owners for stormwater-related work, giving the city more teeth if it chooses to recapture the funds drawn from the reserve balance for the repairs by assessing property owners.
