Ericus - historically, the sports groups pay for an amenity at a park at their expense (theRead More concession stand at Four Seasons, for instance) and they turn over ownership to the park district. It then becomes available for use by ALL park users. The park district is a steward of that amenity. In this case, PSA constructed the shed, donated it to the park district, and was granted basically exclusive use. However, I don't believe there was ever a written agreement memorializing this fact (because we both trusted each other). For whatever reason, someone made the decision to change the locks without prior notification to PSA. Obviously, this situation will need to change for all sports groups using park district space/amenities, because the park district has now shown that they didn't value the other party enough to notify them that the equipment would be moved or confiscated.
Vicky Polito March 28, 2014 at 12:26 pm
Larry, thanks for the background info. BNB--you're right.

That's not just typically stupid, it's a flat out lie. But, the most animated he got at this special "discussion" the other night was when he sounded like he might CRY trying to front the idea that anyone was attacking the staff, oh, the staff, how could anyone question the decency of the staff!? He didn't say much defending the district's kids and all residents, and he smirked and laughed in the faces of parents when they said we are angry, we are disappointed, we are concerned, and we need you to answer us on many things.
