The joint project between the City of Mount Vernon and Skagit County government to build a public library, community center and parking structure in downtown Mount Vernon took a leap forward in recent days, as the Mount Vernon City Council unanimously passed a decision to hire a project management company to oversee the design and construction of the project.
The City has selected OAC Services, a Northwest Washington-based company that works alongside various local architectural partners, as well as Lydig Construction Company. OAC has an impressive resume of successful community projects, and a reputation for their strong commitment to identifying and addressing the unique demands of their partner communities. The company will be responsible for assessing how those community demands can best fit onto the project site, located across from the County Courthouse, on Kincaid Street.
The contract commences immediately, and OAC expects to finish the work of this preliminary phase by February 28, 2019.
Mount Vernon City Library Academy includes video tutorials for digital content, such as downloadable ebooks and audiobooks, Novelist Plus, TumbleBook Library, Mango Languages, and more.
The Library offers printing from your laptop or mobile device on our wireless network. You can print Microsoft Office and Adobe Reader files, many image files, and web pages (only works at the library).
