Two dilapidated buildings in the uptown Mount Vernon district will be removed, thanks to a tax increment finance (TIF) agreement with developers looking to take ownership of the Sing-A-Long Bar and Grill building.

Mount Vernon city administrator Chris Nosbisch explained that the city was looking to approve taking on debt in TIF of $50,000 to assist the new owners in removing the buildings that reside south of the business on Hwy. 1 and First Street West.
