MOUNT VERNON — Numerous construction projects around the city are getting ready to go to bid. A preview of this year’s projects was discussed Friday with Mount Vernon Mayor Richard Mavis and city engineer Cameron Keaton.
Plans are being finalized for a brick replacement project on Pleasant Street, between Mulberry and Sandusky streets. This will include removing old bricks and replacing with those from an existing supply as well as laying new curbs. Cost for this project is $662,000 with 80 percent coming from Community Development Block Grant funds.
Construction will take place on a new picnic pavilion at the north end of Riverside Park. Mavis said that the existing pavilion at Riverside Park gets the most use of all the park pavilions in Mount Vernon. An old tennis court, which was converted into a horseshoe pit, will be replaced with a parking lot which will sit just south of the new pavilion. This project is set at a cost of $106,000 and will come from CDBG funds. There will be no fee to use the pavilion, but reservations will be scheduled for groups wishing to use the facility.
