Mt. Vernon to see more growth

MT. VERNON, IL (KFVS) -

With only 20 acres of land left from its last industrial park purchase, which was done back in the '80s, city leaders say they are more than ready to continue on with the city's growth.

The 100 acre lot, which would mostly be used for businesses involved with manufacturing and distributions, is located on the west side of interstate 57 off Broadway.

City Manager Ron Neibert said the council will discuss the option first then the council will begin applying for grants to pay for the $3.5 million property.

Neibert said no money will come out of pocket from the city.
