Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
HelloThis is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regard.Is the Antietam Athletic Field County/City/Town or State owned, do you know?
And to be clear you want to make it an ordinance there be no dogs or bikes on that field and/or other taxpayer funded fields?
Thank youYou first will want to know who is the governing agency. Because what you need to do is talk to the lawmakers and have then bring the law/ordinance to a vote.
If this is a county or city/town and not a state owned property, then you need to talk to you council people. But I am guessing that since it is on public school property, it would be state owned and protected. That would mean you need to contact your local elected official to the General Assembly -
You can use this LINK to find out who your legislator is. Call them, speak to their staff aide and find out if they have laws against dogs and bikes of this nature on these properties. Ask if your legislator would be willing to bring a proposal to the legislature to add Dogs and Bikes to the list of prohibitions.
If it is a local government funded park then you need to talk to your council representatives and see if they would bring a proposal for a vote to have Dogs and Bikes added.This is how the laws and the ordinances are made.Please let me know if you have other questions, need more information or clarification in this regard. Otherwise, thanking you in advance for a Positive Rating as that is how I get credit for my time and information.Thank you
