City proposes place numbers for council seats

A proposal to make each of the council seats a place, which would still be elected at-large, was requested to be listed as an action item on the Mount Vernon City Council’s meeting agenda for August.

Councilman Kenneth Shelton called for discussion of the matter at last week’s council workshop.  “We should consider establishing council seats by places...it would make each council member more accountable to the voters,” explained Councilman Shelton. For more details, see the Aug. 1 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald.
