Fee Hurts Hanover Sports

Hanover | by Robyn Garvey  

Coach says non resident user fee has led to significant drop in sports registration.

A Hanover minor sports coach has taken it upon himself to try to solve the town's non resident user fee problem.

Dan Jolly says the fee is hurting Hanover's minor sports because their registration numbers have dropped.

Jolly says they need those out of town children in order to keep their programs alive.

Jolly He adds minor sports registration is expensive enough -- and the non resident fee only adds to that burden.

The non resident user fees for minor sports equals 33 thousand dollars a year.

Originally Jolly requested that Hanover either drop the user fee completely or spread the cost to all participants -- but Council did not like that idea.

Jolly now has volunteered his services to approach both Brockton and West Grey about negotiating a new recreation agreement.

Hanover has been without a service agreement with the two communities since 2006.
