Unanswered 30 to 45 6 to 10 Stop trying to be so politically correct and get down to the important issues. Stop trying to make yourselves look like the good guy and consider what is important to Verona's citizens.
North East 30 to 45 Under 1 The people of Verona have been extremely helpful and amiable towards us.
North East 30 to 45 1 to 5 I want to know why a gate was installed on Franklin Street, making it a dead end. It causes much traffic on my block.
North East 30 to 45 6 to 10 More action, less talk, cut costs now to get our taxes under control.
North East 30 to 45 Over 10 this is an execellant forum for citizens to voice concerns and be heard. It is not possible for most of us to attend every council meeting & view them on VTV, but that should not discount our voice & opinions. We are a smart community, still smarting from the Treffinger scandal & we are called to be ever more vigilant in our attentiveness to our town's needs & the leaders who address those needs.
North East 30 to 45 Over 10 Verona is a very political town and I am not a political person. I may not be as involved as others, but I am still interested in what goes on. I believe Mr. Robbins learned a lesson when he spoke to people about his grant writing but did not personally get up and address the board formally. He hopefully learned how the "game" is played and will be more wiser next time. And to the board members who knew he could be useful but did not back him - SHAME ON YOU.
North East 46 to 60 Over 10 Verona is a good town to live in. As I move on in years it would be nice to have another Senior Housing option. But at the same time I'm not eager to see more development.
North East Over 60 6 to 10 There would be Much Better Awareness if our cable station could regularly advertise its coming day or two of live coverage! All those "flip cards" that keep repeating during non-live hours, surely could include one or two with tonight's and tomorrow's program/hours!! Please. . . .
North East Over 60 Over 10 Yes! Stop Mickey Mousing around and give the title of Chiel of Police back to Doug Huber, who so generously gave up this title to help the town save money. Unless this action is taken, I don't see how I could vote for any of the existing councilman at the next election!
North West 46 to 60 Over 10 return the original tree lighting ceremony; it used to be like a "frank capra" movie; now, it's nothing but a big garage sale, aka "fair in the square", it's cheesy and trashy
North West 46 to 60 Over 10 I don't agree with how they handled the town management/public safety person issue. Doug Huber is a kind and fair man. His only weakness is trying to assist everyone. He don't believe is political and has had to do the bidding of prior councels as well. Over all he has been effective and the public humiliation he has suffered is terrible. It would appear the Mayor and Council want complete autonomy.
North West 46 to 60 Over 10 I think you are doing a pretty good job, I've lived here a long time and I am happy to live in Verona, I like this town, have few complaints and hope it will continue to be such a nice place to live and raise children. I don't think we should put a lot of housing or businesses on the hilltop because it will cause too much more traffic on Bloomfield Avenue. I think our taxes are a bit too high and they just keep going up and up making it difficult to live on one salary. I think we could use more businesses other than drug stores, nail salons and pizza places... they seem to be about all there is in Verona.
North West 46 to 60 Over 10 The town council should make monthly updates to the town on Hilltop developments. Issues such as status of Verona receiving land from this parcel for athletic fields, building of homes, and just the general subject of when and how this major construction will begin and develop are critical to lifestyle issues of the entire town residents and businesses.
North West Over 60 6 to 10 Verona is a great town. We should all keep up the good work.
North West Over 60 Over 10 Have a unified sound system that picks up everyone's voice at the same level during the town hall meetings when you're watching and listening on TV.
South East 30 to 45 6 to 10 Help we need more field and gym time for our young athletes.
South East 30 to 45 Over 10 I love my home, my neighbors and my neighborhood. But I wish I never settled here. The school system is not good. The township is "who knows who". Seniors are disrespected, as are minorities. We overspend like crazy. Taxes are going up every year. Verona Park is much less than it used to be with the wetlands it now is made up of.The youth sports in this town are allowed to be run by thugs...except for lacrosse. THis is a town stuck in the 50's!
South East 30 to 45 Over 10 Keep the hilltop on focus please.
South East 30 to 45 Over 10 thanks for your time. voices need to be heard.
South East 46 to 60 1 to 5 With the Hilltop being developed and more people living in and traveling through town, it is crucial for the safety of everyone that the traffic patterns on Bloomfield analized. People are dying. Sometimes I am afraid to get out of my car when parking on Bloomfield Ave.
South East 46 to 60 6 to 10 Yes. FIX THE ROADS! START RECYCLING IN THE SCHOOLS! FOLLOW THE MANDATE! Free up more playing fields for the younger kids. Don't give all those adult teams priority just because they pay the Community Center to use the fields. We paid to build the Community Center with our tax dollars and it's our kids who attend the schools and participate in the sports. I'd like to see some consideration for the aesthetic value of things in our town. More ordinances to create some continuity among the signage and building construction. Right now it's just a mish mash of styles along Bloomfield Ave.
South East 46 to 60 Over 10 All politics is local......I don't care whether you are republican or democrate, do what's is best for Verona. I have no complaint with the taxes I am paying now; so do what's best without telling me you are doing it to save tax dollars. I will earn, I will pay it.....just do what's best to maintain the quality of life that makes Verona the kind of community that attracts good people and families.
South East Over 60 Over 10 I have not seen anything about this survey. Who is paying for it? Why has there not been more publicity about it? Who commissioned this survey?
South West 30 to 45 6 to 10 The track record of accountability in government is terrible in Verona. That should be priority of the Mayor and Council. Every paid position should be accountable.
South West 30 to 45 6 to 10 The land across from the VCC could possibly be acquired using county open space funds and preserved and beautified as an attractive entrance to the town.
South West 30 to 45 Over 10 Thank you for conducting this survey. Even though I am a member of the Council, I feel as a citizen I should make my feelings known.
South West 30 to 45 Over 10 this is a great small town that has alot of great people--- let's not forget that life is too short-- take care of our youth and they will grow to take care of this town-- make sure the mayor understands this and has it in mind 1st------
South West 30 to 45 Over 10 Please do something about the traffic through our town already! Make one way streets, close off the bottom of Hillside and Morningside Roads, stop the allowable left turns at every intersections so that Bloomfield Avenue keeps on moving. Enough foot dragging already! Speed signs are nice, but really we require more drastic measures. Thank you for this survey and for reading my responses.
South West 30 to 45 Over 10 Submitted by Rich Williamson
South West 46 to 60 Over 10 On the same referendum to reinstate a chief of police, I would like to see one to recall the Mayor and Deputy Mayor.
South West 46 to 60 Over 10 There really should be a moratorium on ALL new construction. Traffic is already more than the roads can bear.
South West 46 to 60 Over 10 Again, this kind of survey should be mailed out to all residents. Thank you
South West 46 to 60 Over 10 I understand the difficulty in managing a town. My main suggestion is to keep the public involved in your decisions. Our input is the first thing that is necessary in the performance of your duties. Ask for more public input.
South West 46 to 60 Over 10 get control of yourselves. Get on the same page and get going. The town needs your help and I don't see results from your tenure.
South West Over 60 Over 10 You covered most of the issues of concern to citizens. Many new people do not understand our form of government, nor do they understand how school costs are determined and what control, if any the counci has over them. Education of these issues are needed.
