Revised use application approved for city properties

The Mount Vernon City Council members approved a revised use form for citizens and groups requesting use of city properties with a statement on the application that alcoholic beverages at the park are not permitted.

Concerns were first raised by private citizens after a permit was requested late last year for an event at Little Creek Park that would include the sale of alcoholic beverages. See the March 8 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald for the rest of this story.
