Thanks to Eldon Downs and all the Public Works staff for their efforts in keeping streets open during the early January snowstorms.
I would encourage Mt. Vernon citizens to pass on their thanks to the staff as you see them around town.
Our first flag commemoration began Feb. 1 as we honor Black History Month.
Watch for opportunities to provide your input as citizen sessions are planned soon on the Streetscape Project.
Design ideas are sought as well as transition planning.
Thanks to the Mount Vernon School Board for their efforts with the just completed superintendent search process.
And welcome to our new superintendent Matt Leeman and his family to our community.
