City HOT Fund requests heard by Council

Allocation requests for funds from the City of Mount Vernon’s Hotel Occupancy Tax (HOT) funds were presented by nine groups with $51,300 in qualifying projects to support.

However, only about $35,000 is expected to be available for distribution in the 2019-20 fiscal-year. For a listing of entities requesting funds and their plans for utilizing the money, see the July 18 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald.
