Vernon city employees to get Christmas bonuses

Published: Tuesday, November 27, 2012 at 01:26 PM.

The council approved the request.

Vernon resident Bill Dobbins asked the council to look into collecting Department of Transportation contingency funds on the Highway 79 bridge project, which has gone nearly a year over schedule.

“I think there are funds there that the city can recoup from the DOT, because of the construction company being behind schedule. There are fines and contingency funds that will just go back to the DOT.”

The council also learned that the DOT’s check for the old Washington County Canning Center building had been received by the city. The property was purchased from the city for $158,500 and the city is in the process of getting the equipment moved out of the canning center and into storage.

Also, Vernon’s annual Christmas Parade will be held at 1 p.m. Saturday, Dec.8.

The Grand Marshal will be “honorary citizen of Vernon” Brent Heard.

Line-up will be held at 12:30 p.m. at the track behind City Hall. Anyone wishing to be in the parade should contact City Hall at 535-2444.
