Mayor’s Message

Welcome to the City of Mount Vernon, one of Ohio’s Best Home Towns! There is a hopeful and genuine community spirit and partnership among the residents and various organizations that make Mount Vernon a special place to live, work, play, and raise a family.

Historically, we have a rich entrepreneurial spirit, find ways to reinvent, reuse, and repurpose aging infrastructure, and work together as a community to take care of our neighbors, friends, family, and visitors to our city. I urge you to stop into our different places of business, experience a variety of wonderful restaurants and retailers, explore our spacious and charming parks and bike paths, and recharge your spirit by taking in a show, concert, or art class downtown to connect with our delightful city.
