Westchester County officials are considering pushing forward on a plan to fix up Memorial Field in Mount Vernon, which has fallen into disrepair. A decade ago, city and county officials launched a $12.7 million plan to erect a new stadium with an eight-lane running track, but that project fell by the wayside as millions of dollars were squandered and administrations changed, LoHud reported. County Legislator Lyndon Williams, who is pitching the idea of the county taking over the project, told LoHud “This is the best way to go. It’s not a matter of mistrust. It’s a matter of which is the most expedient way to get Memorial Field completed.” Officials now hope to have the park open by the summer but have to remove debris and fix it up to do so. [LoHud]
