Hilltop-Fields-GroundbreakingAs a stiff breeze blew down from the Hilltop yesterday afternoon, Verona broke ground on the construction of two turfed youth sports fields.

The event was attended by both the current Town Council, which last April approved $5.125 million in bonds to fund the construction; Essex County Executive Joseph N. DiVincenzo Jr. (the county had ceded the former site of its women’s prison to Verona as part of the Hilltop redevelopment); and former officials such as Robert Detore, who floated the original idea for the fields while he was on the Council in 2001.

Town Manager Joe Martin said Monday that he expects the new fields to be ready for play in 15 months.
