MOUNT VERNON — The city’s Finance Study Committee will meet at 4 p.m. Monday and is expected to issue its recommendation on a city income tax hike, Mayor Richard Mavis reported Friday.

Mavis said he hopes the committee will offer support for the proposed 1/2 percent income tax hike, so that city council will have that information when it considers the issue at its June 26 meeting.
