The City of Mount Vernon has passed a resolution to cancel bad debts that can no longer be collected.

The policy defines bad debt as one of three instances: uncollectable – there’s no correct contact information for the individual who owes the debt or they are deceased, stale – the debt has been around for 10 years or more without collecting any money on the debt, or insignificant – the debt is in the amount of $40 or less.
