Franklin Cardinal makes an appeal to members of the Mount Vernon City Council to not move the veterans memorials away from the downtown square. An emotional crowd filled Council Chambers Monday evening.
A proposed new veterans memorial display for the southwest corner of the downtown plaza was recently nixed by the Mount Vernon City Park Board. The Park Board chose an alternate site for the memorial, the raised area at the southeast corner of Little Creek Park, just northwest of the Franklin County Courthouse.
