A West Hanover Township Supervisor disagreed with West Hanover's Park and Recreation chairman during ball field fee negotiations on Monday night, but in an unexpected way.

Parks and Recreation Chairman Jeff Holt presented township supervisors with proposed contract renewal for the West Hanover Baseball/Softball Association to pay $2,500 for the use of township fields this season.

Supervisor Don Steinmeier said the association shouldn't pay anything.

"People pay their taxes to support these fields. Charging them another $2,500 to use them is outrageous," Steinmeier stated.

Holt said he negotiated the initial contract during a past term as president of the baseball/softball association and considered it a "win-win situation" for both parties. Before that, the association actually paid more in field maintenance costs.

Supervisor Chairman Adam Klein motioned to accept the contract renewal, but it quickly failed because no one else on the board moved to seconded it.

"What do we do now?" Parks and Recreation Coordinator Dixie Fesig asked.

Supervisor Jay Megonnell said that he didn't have a problem with the $2,500 fee. What he did have a problem with, he explained, was "all the fields being tied up" by the baseball/softball association.

"If somebody else wants to use the fields, they can't," Megonnell said.

Fesig said residents are welcome to reserve the fields whenever they're not in use by the baseball/softball association.

"It only becomes an issue about 10 times a year," Fesig noted.

Megonell made a second motion to accept the contract proposal, which the supervisors approved in a 3-1 vote.

Steinmeier voted against the proposal. Supervisor Gloria Zimmerman was absent

According to the township's website, Houck Memorial Park on Florence Drive is the primary location for the West Hanover Baseball/Softball Association's program.

The 6.5-acre facility includes a teener field; a Babe Ruth field; two midget fields; and two concession stands.

The baseball/softball association also uses fields at the Houck Manor Park directly outside of the township's park and recreation center on Walnut Street. The park is owned by the West Hanover Township Fire Company but is leased to the township for the baseball/softball program.

Holt said that the baseball/softball association has around 300 youths playing on 20 teams.
