Dear Website Visitors:


Welcome to the City of Mount Vernon! Whether you are a resident, a visitor or a business interested in locating here, we hope that our web site will be a valuable information tool for you. If there is something you cannot find on our site please do not hesitate to call us.

Mount Vernon is a growing community with a charm and personality that combines the traditions of the past with the progress of the present. We are the perfect small city —large enough to provide excellent service but small enough to know our neighbors. We are proud of our rich heritage and achievements and of our eagerness to embrace our potential for the future.

Mount Vernon is a wonderful place to live, visit, work, play and study. We have a unique blend of beautiful residential areas and a solid business community. Our city also offers community parks, the Kokosing Gap Trail, a new water park, as well as numerous opportunities for sports and golfing.

If you are visiting us, I hope you have the opportunity to stroll around our historical downtown area and visit the many attractive stores and restaurants or check out the newly renovated B & O Railroad Station.

Mount Vernon is a thriving community that provides high quality services yet maintains a caring, small town climate. As Mayor, it will be my privilege to be of service to you.
