Guest Hockey Parent Posted December 30, 2005 Report Share Posted December 30, 2005 The only Recreation sport taking place at this time is Street Hockey, yet the Rec Department couldn't find the time to shovel the snow down in the Hockey rink, plow the parking lot or shovel the walkway to the rink. Now the league has to finish up after the New Year when it was supposed to finish before Xmas. The kids went 3 weeks without playing a game all because of lazieness. I don't mind having it end when it is, but it is absolutely unnecessary. What am I paying taxes for? When a parent went down to check on the status of the rink he found one of the Rec momo's sleeping in his pickup in the parking lot and a couple other guys riding around on the grass on the other side of the rink doing nothing at all to fix the problem. They did throw salt on top of the 6 inches of snow in the parking lot so I can't say that they did nothing.....what are they retarded? Calling the Rec Department to complain would do me no good because as I have found in other sports, the pothead will blame it on the other one and vice versa. People will argue that the rink couldn't be plowed because it would ruin the surface but the rink is going to be ripped up in the summer anyway because it wasn't put in right in the first place. Even if plowing wasn't an option, whatever happened to actually earning your money for a living and getting out there with plastic shovels that won't scratch the surface and actually shoveling? I know.....why don't I do it myself if I am so concerned but I actually work for a living and take care of my own business during the hours of 9 to 5 and I don't need to be doing work for people who use my tax money as their salary. My hat goes off to Tony Guveia for running a great program down there and having to put up with dealing with the town's BS. Tony does an incredible job of running the street hockey league with nothing but the best intentions for the kids in mind. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
