City Council Releases Seem More Abundant

So, I’ve made a few posts about how disappointed I am that the Mount Vernon City Council sneakily (in my opinion) passed a new tax to the citizens and shoppers of this city. This was done at a meeting during the day which I believe many residents would have had a very hard time attending due to work commitments.

With that being said, I have seen quite a bit of detailed information in the local papers regarding City Council and even County Board actions and plans. I cannot determine whether this is due to better reporting by the newspapers or due to the Council/Board providing better information. Either way, this new found wealth of information is a great surprise to me given the recent lack of information provided to the public by accessible means.

So, to whomever is responsible – thank you!
