Support Marian Cerio for Madison County Court judge

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

To the editor: To sit in judgment of others requires someone to have special and unique qualities. They need to possess the highest integrity, a strong moral compass, an expert knowledge of the law, an open and objective approach, while at the same time be fair, just and compassionate. I know of no one who embodies all these fine qualities better than Marian Cerio.

Observations on the village parking issue

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

To the editor: It's obvious to anyone who visits our village frequently that parking here has become an issue. It's a shame, because in winter months our local shops are empty, but in the summer when we do have traffic people can't find a place to park. I guess the new 15-minute parking will help a bit, but that won't encourage people to browse and linger in the shops and restaurants. As a longtime area resident, I see some parking offenses as a symptom of a larger problem.

Village parking: Help us help you

GUEST COLUMN

I was disheartened to read the letter to the editor in the 29 July edition of the Cazenovia Republican. Those of us who serve the village want every visitor to have a positive experience and it is disappointing when we are not afforded the opportunity to help that happen. I was able to reach the author of the letter by telephone and we had a constructive dialogue about their experience. I would respectfully take exception to the author’s allegation that the village was “unfriendly” and “deceptively tricky” because they were ticketed after parking overnight on a village street. We have tried to put a system in place to prevent circumstances like this.

Mayor, trustees issue village parking enforcement philosophy to help clarify ongoing parking issues

The village of Cazenovia’s parking enforcement program exists to ensure public safety and to maximize our available parking resources as part of a broader strategy to create a positive local economic climate and a welcoming environment for residents and visitors. As with our village court and our police department, it does not operate for the purpose of generating revenue but rather as an essential component of our overall justice system.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

To the editor: On behalf of the Lorenzo Driving Competition board and show committee, I would like to thank the Cazenovia Community for supporting the 39th annual Lorenzo Driving Competition held on July 18 and 19 at the Lorenzo State Historic Site.

Closing of Erieville church is a tragedy

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

To the editor and community: As is probably well known by now, at the end of June the Erieville United Methodist Church had to close its doors. We are all saddened and disheartened by this event. Though we pleaded to the end, the decision was not ours, but a forced closure (discontinuance) by the UNY Annual Conference.

The Cazenovia Lions Club would like to thank and acknowledge all of the contributors including the anonymous donors who made our 2015 fundraising drive a success. We especially want to thank those of you who have continued to support us throughout the years.

We will no longer patronize Cazenovia because of unfriendly, unwelcoming parking enforcement

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

To the editor: Our family of between 50 and 60 people has been traveling to Cazenovia for an every-other-year family reunion. We stay and spend in Cazenovia and the surrounding area for four to six days each time... Many of us received tickets for overnight parking outside the dormitory on Sullivan Street. We have paid those under protest.

EDITORIAL: Let’s all help build a new community playground

Every community needs a great public park and playground, and plans are underway to create one in Cazenovia in the Riverside Drive area behind the Cazenovia Public Library. The village board has been working for months on plans to redevelop the “Creekside” district, which would include a park and playground surrounded by nature trails, and their board meeting next Monday, Aug. 3, will include a public hearing to discuss the issue. What is just as exciting as creating a new park for our community, however, is the opportunity for all of us to contribute to the project.

CAVAC’s grateful thank you to the community
