Early voting begins Monday

Early voting in the election of Place 1, 3 and 5 seats on the Mount Vernon City Council will begin Monday, April 22.

The Place 1 seat is the only contested race, with two candidates filing applications, after sitting councilman Jeff Briscoe announced he would not seek a fifth term.
