Metal Detecting in OP, KS city Parks

To: The Elected Officials of the City of Overland Park, Kansas We, the undersigned citizens petition the City of Overland Park, Kansas to delete the "rule" Park Directive #4 the Director of Parks and Recreation placed against metal detecting in the city parks. This is not an Ordinance passed by the City Council. Metal detecting in the city parks is beneficial to the city, as it removes harmful items (nails, glass, needles, etc.) that the city could be sued for being neglect in their removal. It also provides the benefit in the return of lost items to their rightful owners. Metal detector users have provided a service to this city's. Police Department and Park and Recreation Department in the past to the benefit of all residents. Metal detecting properly creates less damage to the City Park than many other allowed activities. "In framing a government, which is to be administrated by men over men, the great difficulty lies in this: you must first enable the government to control the governed; and in the next place oblige it to control itself"
