Mount Vernon — Westchester County Court Judge Susan Cacace once again ordered the City of Mount Vernon to immediately remove the padlocks off OK Freddy’s Meat Market, 132 S. 4th Avenue and not to put locks back on, Tuesday afternoon.

Visibly angry that her previous court order was not followed when the business was locked up for a third time, Sunday afternoon, she stated the city of Mount Vernon violated her court order by putting locks back on and putting a time restriction on when Freddy and his employees could enter the business. She refused to write-up the order again saying it was clear the first time she ruled. While she was upset her orders were not followed she didn’t hand out any penalties and told both parties they need to work it out and she better not see them back in court next week on this issue.

After midnight, early Wednesday morning, the locks had yet to be removed. BW texted Mayor Richard W. Thomas to request he and Freddy sit down together in the next few days to iron out their differences for the betterment of the city and BW would sit in as a third-party the way we did in the meeting with retired MVPD officer Donald Moore and the Mayor. Our text sent at 7:14 P.M. Tuesday night has not been answered at the time of the posting of this story.

The saga continues and there doesn’t seem to be an end in sight as both parties are standing their ground. BW will continue to follow this developing story.
