Many thanks to the 89 citizens of Waitsfield that participated in the Town Meeting Survey. Waitsfield supported cell and broadband service and labeling food products. Below are comments.
“The government collects too much information on the lives of American citizens, but so do companies such as Google, etc.”
“Public transportation in Vermont is pathetic. Try to go from North Fayston Road to Montpelier. The Mad River Valley is underserved. Waitsfield to Fletcher Allen.”
“Commend road crews for snow clearance efforts.”
“Moderate our spending goals. Remember we are poor.”
“We should require hands-free cell phone use and no texting before prohibiting cell phones entirely while driving.”
“There is way too much drug use and drug dealers in the Mad River Valley. It needs to be cleaned up. Dealers are growing weed to sell right in their living quarters.”
“Really concerned about the price of new health care, especially for those that were on Catamount previously. To have your premium triple is not fair to this group of folks who already have a tough time financially.”
