Mount Vernon mayor set to answer to misconduct charge

Mount Vernon's mayor was scheduled to be arraigned Monday on official misconduct charges.

Mayor Clarice Kirby was scheduled to appear in Rockcastle District Court.

In September, Kirby was arrested on a charge of official misconduct, a misdemeanor, after a dispute over a rock wall.

Rockcastle County schools Superintendent Larry Hammond accused Kirby of having the city tear down a rock wall while rebuilding sidewalks and taking some of it to a property she owned.

Hammond says he wanted the rocks and thinks they have historical value.
