Take out meals from The Hub meal center come to an end

No takeout meals will be exiting the doors of the county operated meal center, called “The Hub,” after formal action adopting policy and procedures for the center by the Franklin County Commissioners Court in a special session last Thursday.

The elimination of takeout meals was the most simple and direct means to affect the budget for the meal center, which,  without change, was projected to run out of operating funds in the third quarter of 2019. For more information, see the May 9 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald.
