The City and County are in discussions to finalize the location at 208 Kincaid St. The property is owned by the County and has served as a parking area for the courthouse and downtown access. The County is making a very valuable contribution to this project by making this property available. A final agreement will enable the City to begin the process of geotechnical survey to determine what the building foundation requirements will be.
In late May the Mount Vernon City Council voted to start accepting millions of dollars in state tax rebate money which primarily supports the building of the parking structure. Although we are still few steps away from a completely financed facility, this marks an important milestone towards a new library and improved library services for our community.
