Mount Vernon finalizes consolidated funding application


MOUNT VERNON – The City of Mount Vernon filed its 2017 Consolidated Funding Application with the state. Officials hope to move forward following more than $2 million in funding in 2016 for sewers and Memorial Field.
Mayor Richard Thomas said officials hope to more than double that figure with the city’s latest application.
The grants include revitalizing the bridges over Metro-North railroad tracks; further development of Memorial Field, investing in smart technology to boost the city; and developing “exciting infrastructure investments that will make out city more walkable, bikeable, and connected,” Thomas said.
