Adopt-A-Spot program revived

The revival of a once successful program with groups and individuals assuming the planting and care of small areas of public grounds was announced by Mount Vernon’s City Administrator Tina Rose at last week’s workshop session of the Mount Vernon City Council.

The Adopt-A-Spot program  is now open to any business, organization, family, and individuals, who would like to help maintain and beautify the often neglected public plots in the business areas within the city.  See the Sept. 6 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald for more information.
