The weather is once again taking a toll on residents who want to use Frederick's sports fields. City officials says all sports fields are closed today (Wed) due to snow cover and wet conditions. That includes city-leased fields and school fields.
No one is allowed to use the fields when they're closed, and violators could face penalties.
The city's Parks and Recreation Department says if a user is found to be a permitted league, the league could be fined, and/or lose field privileges for the season. If it's an unpermitted user, that person could be issued a warning and/or a citation.
For more information on field usage, contact Kristi Winterstein, Office Manager with Parks and Recreation, at 301-600-1493, or e-mail Kristi at firstname.lastname@example.org.
