Mount Vernon: City comptroller has paid bills to fuel vendors
A spokesman for the city of Mount Vernon says the city comptroller has complied with a court order to pay outstanding bills to the city's fuel vendors.
The dispute led to a fuel shortage involving the city's essential vehicles.
This past Friday, Comptroller Deborah Reynolds faced a noon court-ordered deadline to pay the vendors.
Reynolds said she had just received the invoices two days before the deadline.
However, the city claims they had been submitted from last year.
The city says that fuel deliveries can resume now that the comptroller has fully complied with the court order.
