MOUNT VERNON — City officials are gearing up for several projects around town.
Safety-Service Director David Glass said the city will be starting the bid process soon for several projects. The administration will be asking City Council on Monday for permission to select the engineering and analysis firm for the former American National Can property assessment.
The company selected will do approximately 15 to 20 test bores and use ground-penetrating radar to obtain information on what is in the soil on the property. That information will be assessed, then it will be determined what, if anything, is needed to do to clean up the property to Ohio Environmental Protection Agency standards. The assessment process will take the remainder of this year and will be paid for by a nearly $300,000 grant the city received recently.
