Dates set for second quarter clean-up

The City of Mount Vernon and Franklin County are joining with the Keep Texas Beautiful organization to educate and engage local citizens in improving their community environment.

The eight day effort begins Saturday, April 6 with the Great American Trash-off effort to clean up our public spaces. Individuals and members of various organizations are urged to grab a collection bag, wear their  brightest T-shirt or orange vest and pick up trash they find in a public place of their choice. For more information, see the March 28 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald.
