Funding approved for Watermelon Mills building

The Mount Vernon Economic Development Corporation Board of Directors approved $2,000 in funding for infrastructure work on the old Watermelon Mills building.

The funds will help with plumbing and rewiring to accommodate some of the equipment to be used by the new owners. See the August 15 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald for more details about this request and other action taken by the EDC board.
