Ryan Perigo, a Mt. Vernon Parks and Recreation Department employee, uses a Case Skid Steer to bring down a portion of the west shelter at Veterans Memorial Park. The shelter was in need of rehabilita- tion, park officials say, because there were cracks on the concrete floor and the roof was leaking. The shelter improvement is one of the capital projects approved earlier by the city council. The north shelter was recently replaced as a project of the Mt. Vernon Kiwanis Club.
