as they review figures for the 2014 Budget.The cleaning and rebuilding cost was $283,093, with $157,059 of that amount reimbursed by the county’s insurance claims. That left $126,033 that was paid from county reserve funds. For more information from the meeting, see the July 11 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald.
