THE SUMMERVILLE NEWS is reporting today that an agreement that would transfer Mt. Vernon Mills water sysgem over to the Town of Trion may become a reality.

Don Henderson, Vice-President of Mt. Vernon Mills Manufacturing, told Jason Espy of THE SUMMERVILLE NEWS that they are waiting on the town of Trion to return a proposal that would act as a safety measure should Mt. Vernon ever cease operations.  If that were to happen the Town of Trion which depends on the mill for it’s water source, would be able to take over the operation of the water plant.
