The Mount Vernon – Lisbon Police Department is excited to kick off our annual fundraising campaign for 2024.  This event provides the necessary funding to directly support our K-9 Program.  Police K9 programs are a tremendous asset to public safety and officer safety in a community.  Additionally, police K9’s are a very positive public relations tool with the community and our youth.  The event is scheduled for June 14, 2024 at Kernoustie Golf Club, in Mount Vernon.

Minute with the Mayor

Lots of accolades to pass out this month.

Congratulations in wrestling to Libby Dix for being the first Mustang State Champion in girl’s wrestling.

And also to the guys wrestling team for taking 4th in State Duals and the best ever team finish with a 2nd place at State.

Mustang girl’s basketball had a great season and finished in the top 4 in Des Moines with a 22-4 record.

The Uptown Streetscape project is seeking community input. February ended with a meeting with downtown business owners and JEO Consulting Group staff as the vision is being set. More input is needed by going to the survey link on our website and FB page as well. Thanks for your continued input.
