We received a press release from First Selectman Dan Jerram regarding the Recreation Commission Park Rules and the outcome of the Rec Commission Special Meeting held this past Wednesday, March 14; see our March 15 report on that meeting Approved Activities In Town Parks Can Continue, Rec Commission….
In his press release, First Selectman Dan Jerram said:
“Thankfully, as a result of my intervention, on March 14, 2012, the Rec Commission met and held a Special Meeting to address these park rules, acknowledged the mistake and agreed to move toward correcting them quickly. Chairman John Maschi and I agreed that the Recreation Commission would establish a subcommittee to review and recommend a revised list of park rules and submit them to the Board of Selectman [sic] for consideration. The meeting was a productive start toward rectifying a problematic situation. I want to assure residents that I will not allow the outdated rules to be enforced and I hope everyone will exhibit patience and allow the Rec Commission sufficient time to complete the new rules that can adequately serve the people of the Town of New Hartford…”
