Thanks for taking time to do that, the present mayor must run the office with smoke and mirrors and empty words to residents and promises not kept. Hey what else can we beautify in the village to try to make residents stay? NOTHING !! High taxes and foreclosure are enough for some board members.

Gee I wonder what kind of Holiday mixer it's going to be this year? Or should I say who will be excluded this year ! Seems students that go to GCHS live in hainesville also but people tell me the members weren't asked to come to the mixer with the choir or music groups. That's O.K. cause it will be too CRAMPED with no room to move in such a small area. Same thing for the election! Why did it move from a church site with more than plenty of parking to a spot that has inadequate facilitys. With at least 10 or more people sitting for election helpers / judges , say each one drove their own car, thats at least ten spots in parking GONE. Plus employees working at the village hall, say 4 or 5 more spaces GONE. So now you have 1/5 to 1/4 parking available, minimun handicapped, and continual flow for voters coming in, cars were backing up on hainesville rd. trying to get in!!! Talkabout a dumb spot to change it to. Schools and churches or something with ample parking and ease of agress and egress would have been a better choice. wonder if the mayor pulled strings to get it there?Just waiting for foreclosure proceedings to kick me out then won't have to worry cause i'll have to go to a care facility.

I guess we'll have to read the paper on who filed because you know it won't be brought up in the meetings that go on you tube! Secrecy is well when you deny information to the public about this subject whose only info to the meetings is on you tube since I have trouble getting out now.

I dont think she is horrible. Nobody else that nags on her is running against her. My only complaint is simple enforcements are not being kept up. I have lived in other towns, villages, and cities throughout the country and have never seen the lack of enforcement of codes. Right now throughout our town christmas lights are still up. Big problem? No. But these are the same lights that were up since Christmas 2011. On one of the streets when you enter from Hainesville road and make a right garbage cans are out until the weekend. If they are elderly the paid village employees can help them. In the summer some homes have grass three feet tall. If foreclose have the already paid employee cut it or force resident to cut it. I dont want to be the complaining neighbor. I want my villag officials to nip it in the bud.

If you go to the meetings or just read the minutes you will find that the mayor and three trustees are running unapposed. This was announced. The parking issue mentioned by Sunshine has gotten out of hand. In addition to overnight parking, parking over the sidewalk is prohibited by State Statute. Get a copy of the rules and it is right there. But our PD appears to be ignoring it. And, as for Holiday decorations, this was covered way back under Mayor Mueller. Residents can leave them up year round. It's a Freedom of Speach issue.

Talking about rap, I remember putting a post out on 6/13/12 and also 9/10/12 about a Santa decoration on the front porch of a house on Littleton . I guess I should drive by and see if it was ever taken down but with recent posts on what is NOT being done I'm sure the answer will be that is still up waiting for next Christmas . Now I know the mayor looks at this sight because she was putting down a former trustee! He must not of agreed to the mayors my way or the highway agenda. Good for him, so lets see if the mayor responds to this latest facts going on in the village! My feeling is NO. But if you have a complaint, come into the village hall and fill out a form with all your information including your name and address and we will work on it .RIGHT!!

Yes all is well in sotoville and the decoration Santa is still sitting on the front porch of the house on the 100 block of Littleton terrace. Same old same old ! And nobody is running against the present board members? Just shows they want to make sure the transfer of blame will not happen cause the cause is still in office .

You dont have a police department remember? Youvillage did not support it enough and let the Mayor get ri of it. If you still had it I am sure you not be dealing with these issues. Maybe you all should have one something then.

Same old same old in Hainesville. The houses are being foreclosed , the streets still need attention , the ordinances are not being followed , and it seems the mayor and trustees up for reelection are about to be in once again by running unopposed! First lets get to ordinances and what the mayor wanted done in the village that she is not backing up.HOLIDAY DECORATIONS!!!! Seems with my last post an update is that the SANTA decoration is still on the porch on Littleton as of 4/6/2013. Among other misc.lights and such all over the village. The mayor let everyone know of her intentions on this subject but she won't follow them. And not now because it is election time. Wait till she gets 4 more years and more money for being mayor, then she might address this again. And what about the all-call we got about starting an ordinance about residents not shoveling the sidewalks, where it was always just a courtesy to do it not a requirement! Now she wants residents must do it or else get a ticket? And if the resident does it and snow melts and gets water on the sidewalk and later at night it freezes and a walker slips and falls and gets a seriuos injury. Who is resposible for the injureds medical bills? I'M SURE THE VILLAGE WILL FIGHT, WITH THE POWER OF THE VILLAGE LAWYERS, PAID FOR BY THE RESIDENTS TAX DOLLARS,THAT THE VILLAGE IS NOT RESPOSIBLE, BUT THE RESIDENT WHO SHOVELED THE SIDEWALK IS!!!! CAN'T WAIT FOR THAT ORDINANCE TO FLY!! Hope my foreclosure on my house comes quick so I can move in with relatives here,or go to a nursing home so I won't be sued for injuries caused by not obeying a village ordinance.

Hey what the crap is going on with village employees ? Did we get the state to pay all the money they owe the village or what? We must have won the lottery cause I see a whole lot of employees in the village now! A bunch in the office a bunch out working maintenance/ public works! Seems the mayor cut the hours the hall is open and getting rid of the police department and saving money by using the village vehicle for the mayors personal use, seems like we can hire a crap load of relatives to work at the village. I didn't see the jobs posted in the paper... but I'm sure the mayor will tell you she is able to APPOINT people in certain positions!! Well when you kick out the POLICE DEPARTMENT and save over 3/4 of a million dollars doing so .... you can show a little nepotism !!!

Assault weapons? Assault weapons?! Really?? New six wheeled John Deere tractor at public works. Hours cut at village hall being open. More employees being hired. Don't we have something better to talk about like more fountains?
