Verona Utilities Special Notice Regarding Freezing Water Service Pipes
The City of Verona Water Utility is requesting that all customers immediately begin monitoring the temperature of the water entering their homes and businesses. This winter's abnormally cold weather has driven the frost to unusual depths, and it is possible that water service pipes may freeze.
Customers with relatively low amount of water usage are of special concern to the utility. This includes cul-de-sacs and dead-end streets. Also, if you are planning on an extended vacation resulting in little water consumption, we recommend that you contact the Water Utility. 

The Water Utility encourages you to take periodic temperature readings  of your water at the cold water faucet closest to the meter. This may be done by running water for a few moments, then letting the cold water run gently over a household thermometer for approximately 30 seconds.  If the cold water temperature is less than 35 degrees Fahrenheit, please call the Verona Water Utility at 845-6695. 

If you need to take the preventative measure of letting your water run continually, the following steps must be taken:
  • Call the Water Utility at 845-6695. The Utility will recommend that you allow a pencil sized stream of water to run from the faucet continually until further notice.
  • The Water Utility will adjust your next water bill so that you will pay only for the normal usage during this period and not for the water that is left running.
  • The Water Utility will notify you when to stop running the water.

We appreciate your cooperation in helping ensure that your water service pipe doesn't freeze.
Open House on the New Fire and EMS Station Design
Tuesday February 25, 5:00 - 7:00 p.m.
The City of Verona is hosting an open house on the conceptual design for a new Fire and EMS Station on Tuesday, February 25 from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. The open house will be held at the current Verona Fire Station, located at 101 Lincoln Street. Residents are invited to stop in anytime during the open house to view the design concepts, talk with the architect, and ask questions about the plans. Information on the station design concepts is also available on the City website under News and Events.

Five Bugles Design has been hired by the City to design a new station to house the Verona Fire Department and Fitch-Rona EMS. This station would be located just north of the current fire station at the corner of Lincoln Street and E. Verona Avenue. The architect has completed a schematic design for an approximately 40,000 square foot facility that is intended to serve the Fire and EMS needs of the community now and into the future. Detailed design development will continue through the spring with the goal of having a project that is ready to bid by late spring with construction starting by mid-2014.
