During his report at Monday’s City Council meeting, Mt. Carmel Mayor Bill Hudson took time to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving. He also thanked the street department crews for putting up the city’s Christmas lights earlier this week. The mayor also commended public utility crews for restoring power quickly during last weekend’s storm and city workers for their part in clearing debris. In addition, the mayor reminded residents to either bag or mulch their leaves and not to rake them to the street since the city’s leaf vac program has been discontinued this year.
