Vote was “no”

The Economic Development Corporation Board’s vote was incorrectly reported after no clarification was given when a verbal statement announcing an abstention was made in the meeting.

Steve Hammons, president of the board and a member of the Mount Vernon City Council, contacted the Optic-Herald after the report was printed noting for clarification that his vote had been “no” and not an abstention. For more information about this vote, see the December 20 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald.
