We , the undersigned, hereby petition the Township of Scotch Plains council to refrain from considering or voting favorably on a proposed ordinance that would disband the Township Recreation Commission.
As citizens of our township we are of the opinion that the commission has been charged with the responsibility of promoting and maintaining recreation programs and facilities and should continue to do so in the future. We also believe there is a great rush to action that is totally unwarranted. More research and discussion should occur before any action is considered. This rush to judgement suggests that there is a political motive, and we the undersigned wish to maintain the separation from politics for field usage for our children's youth sports activities. It's been working well since just after WW II, there is no problem to be fixed.
SO, please refrain from taking any action to the contrary so that the community can continue to benefit from the independent nature of the recreation commission that has worked so well for our kids.
