Wood touched on a great deal of issues during his speech, including a recent analysis of Mt. Vernon that featured input from new city residents.
While these residents were pleased with the ease of living in Mt. Vernon and the light traffic, they did express concern about a lack of adult activities in the city, including restaurants and art galleries.
Still, with increased volunteer input the city will be well on its way toward making major improvements, Wood said.
“We (the city) can’t do this alone. Give us the input and I will be one of your most vocal advocates,” Wood said.
