The infrastructure (plumbing, water lines, electrical lines) are very old. There needs to be millions of dollars of updates needed in downtown MV. The state does not have that much funding/grants available for these repairs. Raising taxes would be difficult since very few people here actually work and pay taxes.
Have you thought about investing some of your hard earned money to buy and remodel one of the buildings and start a business?? London, Somerset and Berea have a much higher tax base. Hmmmn.....Ashley Judd. There is the answer.....??

If you think Ashley Judd gives a damn about our lil shithold Mt Vernon, you really need to think again. She'll be just like the rest of the politicians. As for making restoring/improving these buildings, that's up to the owners of the buildings, state has nothing to do with them. And if they're county or city owned, then the city should have to pay to restore/improve them, not the whole flipping state of KY.

the reason mt vernon is dying is they dont want change. i moved here around nine years ago, and ive listened to the city turn down every idea. not to add the fact that hardly anyone but a few restaurants pay city tax so fck raising taxes. and why is it that all the people who run this town are old as shit. there isnt any young worth aa shit in this hell whole. fck mt vernon, its killing its self, its not the drugs theyve been here since before my a$$ and yours ive heard that from the older people. What would make Mt Vernon more profitable, kick the old out and allow some change. i say run a doser and knock down every one of those buildings, nothing but trash any ways theres nothing historic there any way half the people outside this town dont even know about MT Vernon, but they Know about renfro valley, even tho they pass it up just to ask directions and cant believe that trash is actually renfro valley, they always say i didnt think that was it,or we passed it we just thought they would be more to it....
