Verona Council Notebook: Paving, Fall Festival & More

Here's a roundup of items discussed at last week's Verona Council meeting.

In addition to a and  Verona Borough streetscape revitalization project, here's a look at some of the items discussed at last week's council meeting:

Paving Project

Council agreed to hold off on paving roads this year in an attempt to pave more next summer.

Engineer Larry Seiler said some roads that were up for consideration were East Railroad Avenue, Ridge Avenue and miscellaneous alleys. However, with $50,000 in the budget for paving, they wouldn't get much more than that done.

Councilman Tony Futules suggested holding the $50,000 from this year and combining it with next year's paving funds to work on a larger paving program.

"If we do a larger project, we'll get more for our money," he said.

In the meantime, the road department will patch roads in need of repair.

Fall Festival

It's time for the fall festival again!

This year's festival will be held Sept. 6, 7 and 8 at the parklet near the borough building along East Railroad Avenue. There will be rides, games, food and more. The festival begins at 6 p.m. each night and ends at 11.


This month's movie in the park will be held on Aug. 31 at Cribbs Field. The movie, "The Lorax" will begin at dusk, and there will be free drinks and popcorn for all in attendance.
