Does Verona need some changes? That is the question the Verona Community Association is asking all the residents of Verona. The VCA mailed a flyer to Verona residents this week. The flyer lists a number of issues that the VCA would like to see South Frontenac Council address. Things like; measures to reduce excess traffic speeds on our main street and cleaning up some properties. They would like you to add your concerns as well. Council is willing to help, but they need to hear from the taxpayers in Verona. There will be a Verona Village Meeting at the Verona Lions Centre on Monday, April 15. Mayor Gary Davison, John McDougall, Bill Robinson and township employees will be there to discuss the ideas for change. We are all encouraged to attend. If all Verona is there to discuss how we can improve the safety, the appearance and the appeal of our community, then council will listen. Don't forget that date. Monday April 15, 7 pm. Verona Lion's Club. For further information regarding the VCA's role in this campaign, please contact Wayne Conway at 613-374-3807.
