MOUNT VERNON — Mount Vernon City Council heard the first reading on a piece of legislation that would allow the city to lease land on the west side of town for a cellular tower.

The legislation, which currently only allows the safety-service director to authorize and advertise for bids, will evolve according to City Law Director Rob Broeren.

“It will be a joint effort,” Broeren said when asked who would write the specifications for the bid process.
