The Mount Vernon Board of Public Works and Common Council met last week, discussing a number of projects and proposals for the city.
The board first heard from Mount Vernon Police Lieutenant Derrick Lemberg. Lemberg stated that he was the radar instructor for the department and that his radar in his car was roughly 20 years old. Lemberg said that he was using a first generation radar, while the newer cars had third generation units on them. Lemberg requested to purchase an upgrade for his car, so he can train on up to date equipment.
