MOUNT VERNON — At the mayor’s weekly press briefing Friday, Street Superintendent Tom Hinkle said one of his street crews was finally replacing the concrete barriers at the foot of Mulberry Street with new fence posts and guard rails.

A motorist hit the guardrail and took it out this winter, and the city had to wait until the ground thawed to install a new one.

Mayor’s report

Mayor Richard Mavis said they have been informed that the city’s application for a $500,000 grant and a $500,000 no-interest loan from the Ohio Public Works Commission for the Parrott Street/South Main Street intersection project, has been approved, but that money will not be available until July 1.

Joshua Morrison/News Crews working on West Pleasant Street upgrades were delayed by the weather earlier this week, but are using the break in the rain to dig a trench for water and sewer lines. Installation should start next week.
