After completing their third round of building replacements for substandard homes, the Mount Vernon City is ready to begin the process for a fourth round of the HOME Program.

Monday night, the council hired Kathy Boyles of Texarkana as consultant and coordinator for the process. For more about this program and other actions taken at the city council meeting, see the September 28 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald.
