Veterans memorial proposed to move

A new location for veterans memorials and concerns over perpetual garage sales were topics at the regular June meeting of the Mount Vernon City Council.

The City of Mount Vernon Park Board withdrew a previous approval for placement of a combined and expanded veterans memorial on the plaza at their June meeting. The board instead is proposing that the memorial be placed on the north end atop the hill overlooking Little Creek Park. The action has raised the ire of area veterans. See the rest of this story in the June 19 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald.
