City applies for sidewalk grant, names KSA as engineers

The City of Mount Vernon Monday night formally applied for a third round of Community Development Block Grant funding to reconstruct the sidewalks along the west side of the square in downtown and selected KSA Engineering out of Tyler for the planning.

This round of sidewalk grants was increased to $250,000 from the $150,000 amounts received in two prior grants. For more about this action and other action taken during the city council meeting, see the Sept. 14 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald.
