City department “wish list” is almost $519,000

Mount Vernon City Council members got a look at the $518,836.94 “wish list” from the various city departments for consideration in their planning of the 2018-19 budget during a special workshop session Monday night.

Two thirds of that list was a request for an estimated $307,570 to fund three additional city police officers. For more details about the City’s budget, see the June 28 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald.
