MOUNT VERNON — The barrels have disappeared from Coshocton Avenue. Mount Vernon Safety-Service Director Dave Glass, standing in for Mayor Richard Mavis at the mayor’s weekly press briefing, said the good weather allowed the contractor to work Friday on striping and signage. Final touches are expected to be completed by the end of today.
“We held off on putting up the new signs until the striping was done. We didn’t want to confuse people as there will be some changes,” Glass said.
The striping and signs will essentially complete the project, as only some minor things remain to be done.
Glass noted that Rolls Royce is completing work on its new building and is also doing some sidewalk and street repairs in the area.
He said the city expects to proceed in the spring with the improvements to the intersection of Sandusky and Chestnut streets to allow easier movement of some of the big items being shipped out of the plant.
Glass said the city’s leaf collection is going well and the city crews have begun their second pass through the city.
“We hope to be finished or close to it by Thanksgiving,” he said.
