Poll: Norwalkians glad council just said no to Berry's request

By and large, the public approves of council's recent refusal to allow Berry's to serve alcohol in a public park. In the Reflector's recent online poll, 60 percent of respondents checked the box approving council's action 45 percent because "there shouldn't be any alcohol in a public park" and 15 percent because "it is just wrong to lease a public park to a private company." Thirty percent said council should have granted Berry's request "a few beers just aren't that big a deal."

PLease note that this is a non-scientific poll and may not be the true indication of the city of Norwalk as a whole.

really? (Anonymous)

Do you think?

Tilted one way ...

please also note that there were two boxes that were in favor NO alcohol being served by Berry's Restaurant, and only one in favor on Berry's serving alcohol. Please also noticed that the one in favor of Berry's serving alcohol was titled "just a few beers isn't a big deal". Sorry but I don't think that is the message Berry's was trying to send. Why was it just not titled Yes, for in favor of Berry's Restaurant serving alcohol. That poll seemed a bit bias to me. Way to go Norwalk Reflector. Will you ever change ur bias ways? Ever?

sorry, but (Ano...

I hate to screw up anyone's opinion with the facts, but I followed the whole beer in the park thing very closely and the reflector wrote several editorials in favor of berry's proposal. if anything, they were biased in favor of berrys.

hear we go with the city of Norwalk again. Berry wants to serve beer and the council said no, they always say no unless there is something in it for them. why can't the sell beer, Norwalk is looking like a retierment town, all they care about is the senior citizen, the working class can't have any fun in this town anymore, only if you are in with the ones the run the town. like not long ago I went to the norwalk beach and saw a procecutor with a bottled beer in his hand (Corona) cop walks by and nothing said a few feet away the same cop giving a ticket to some one with a bottle in his hand, a few people told the cop what about that guy with the bottle why not him, cop said you know who that is. so there you go. we change in our city hall, and it's coming.

I second AlterEgo's comment about it not being scientific and would also add that the poll was essentially for entertainment purposes only. I talked to a couple residents regarding the issue who are not internet savvy and they were in favor of it.
