More than 45 percent of Americans make a resolution every year, according to statisticbrain.com. Some people vow to live a healthier lifestyle, others promise to spend more time with family, and many say they will try to save money.

- Are there certain roads you think need to be repaired?
- Are there new programs or events you'd like to see in the community?
