MOUNT VERNON — The new assistant to the city engineer is on the job and will spend the rest of the month learning the ropes from Tim Tyson, who will be moving to a new job with the county engineer at the beginning of 2017.

City Engineer Brian Bill introduced Jason Epley at the mayor’s weekly press briefing Friday.

Epley, a native of Mount Vernon who now lives in Fredericktown, has a bachelor’s degree in construction management from Bowling Green State University as well has associate degrees from Marion State Technical College in mechanical engineering and structural design. He has spent the last six years working for Beaver Excavating of Canton.
