At the public meeting that has been scheduled for 7 p.m. Tuesday, May 16, in Council Chambers, a panel will answer questions about charter government.

MOUNT VERNON — Should Mount Vernon become a charter city and what does that even mean?

First Ward Council Representative Sam Barone and a mix of community leaders did some investigating of the issue in the fall of 2016.

Now, Barone said, they figure it is time to go public with the discussion, educate citizens about charter government and see whether there is support for change.
