MOUNT VERNON, N.Y. -  The Mount Vernon Daily Voice heads into the new year by counting down, in no particular order, the Top 10 headlines from 2012 .

At the end of July, the Mount Vernon City Council declared four houses on the south side of the city unsafe. The battle to knock them down has lasted nearly a decade.

Though discussions arose about the legality of knocking the houses down, complaints from residents living in the immediate area led to one house being razed. The other three houses that were declared unsafe still stand.
