Allow Cotuit Boy Scout Troop 52 to return to Freedom Hall
This is a petition against Cotuit Prudential Committee member Amy Kates.
Amy Kates is currently in-charge of the requests for the use of Freedom Hall. The Boy Scout Troop 52 made a request to return to Freedom Hall on Friday nights. The request was denied by Ms. Kates.
Amy Kates reasons for not allowing Troop 52 at Freedom Hall:
Amy Kates has said "It would not be beneficial to the Cotuit Fire District" She also questioned if any of the members parents are tax payers. It should not matter because Boy Scout Troop 52 is a Cotuit Troop.
From the Couit Fire District Bylaws regarding the use of Freedom Hall:
The Prudential Committee shall be responsible for the maintenance and
operation of Freedom Hall. Cotuit and/or non-profit groups, whose activities are
consistent with the character of the hall and the village, shall be permitted to use the
building and its amenities at no charge. All other users shall pay a reasonable fee based upon schedules that shall be established by the Prudential Committee. All fees collected shall be returned to the General Fund.
Boy Scout Troop 52 is a long-standing Cotuit troop. Up until last year, the Boy Scouts held their meetings and activities at Freedom Hall. They had to leave because of the mold problems. Since then they have been at Cotuit Federated Church, but this fall the troop is doubling their size. They need more space, and Freedom Hall is where they would like to return, and meet on Friday evenings.
