Details of a dispute between the operator of a flag football league in Chatham’s Lark Park and the Municipality of Chatham-Kent is coming to Monday’s council meeting.
Jason Reynolds took to social media recently claiming the municipality has continued to put up roadblocks to keep him from running his league after he received a notice of trespass from Chatham-Kent that warned he could face a $2,000 fine if he continues to cut a large section of grass in the park, where games are played.
An information report on Monday’s council agenda, posted on the municipal website, alleges Reynolds has been ignoring numerous requests since 2019 to stop cutting the grass in Lark Park.
“Mr. Reynolds is welcome and encouraged to utilize the park for sporting activities provided he complies with the same council-approved policies and procedures as all other groups using municipal parks,” stated the report.
