Welcome to the City of Mt. Vernon’s website. We are honored that you have chosen to view the site. We greatly appreciate our local people and are delighted to have folks from out-of-town visit us. Mt. Vernon is unique, quaint and relaxing. We are known far and wide because of Renfro Valley being located in the city. We have the privilege of entertaining people from around the state, the country and the world. Having our own water company and multiple other departments, the city is a big business in a small town. We are blessed to have a variety of shops, stores and restaurants inside the city limits. We appreciate all of our businesses, residents and visitors. Please take time to visit the various features included in this website. Due to the site being new, we will continue to update with additional information, such as ordinances, forms, photos, events, etc. Eventually we plan to add several links for your convenience and as an expression of our partnership with our sister cities of Brodhead and Livingston, as well as all of Rockcastle County.
