Delaware County Youth Football Team Forced To Practice In Dark

Delaware County Youth Football Team Forced To Practice In Dark


TONIGHT WE’RE GETTING ANSWERS AS TO WHY THOSE LIGHTS WERE NOT TURNED ON. GOOD EVENING AIM IDEA WASHINGTON. AIM JESSICA DEAN. “EYEWITNESS NEWS” REPORTER HENRY ROSSOFF IS IN COLWYN WITH THE STORY. REPORTER: LET ME SHOW YOU THE ISSUE RIGHT HERE THIS DOOR IS LOCKED AND BEHIND THE DOOR YOU GET TO THE BREAKERS. COACHES CANNOT ACCESS THIS WITHOUT THE BORO’S HELP AND SO FAR THEY HAVE NOT TURN LIGHTS ON. THEY SAY THAT IS COMPLETELY UNACCEPTABLE BECAUSE THEY HAVE A LEASE TO USE THIS FACILITY. STOPE. REPORTER: YOUTH FOOTBALL PRACTICE GOES PRETTY SMOOTHLY UNTIL ABOUT 7:15. COME ON, LINE UP. REPORTER: RIGHT AROUND THEN IT GETS TOO DARK TO PLAY SAFE LY. SO, PARENTS USE THEIR CARS, EVEN, PHONES TO LIGHT THE WAY. JUST TO GET THROUGH THE LAST HALF AN HOUR OF PRACTICE. REPORTER: MOST FRUSTRATING PART THIS FIELD HAS LIGHTS. RUN IT. REPORTER: HEAD COACH TERRELL REEVES TEAM HAS NOT BEEN ALLOWED TO USE THEM SINCE LAST DECEMBER WHEN THE BORO CHANGE THE LOCKS ON THE FIELD HOUSE PREVENTING HIM FROM ACCESSING BREAKER AND DENYING HIS GROUP VALUABLE STORAGE SPACE. READ, WHO SHOT THIS VIDEO A WHILE BACK SAY MUNICIPAL LEADERS HAVE YET TO GIVE HIM A STRAIGHT ANSWER AS TO WHY THEY ARE LOCK OUTSIDING WHAT THE COACH CALLS FAKE ELECTRICAL ISSUES. FOR MYSELF, I HAVE A DIFFERENT GATHERING, USING A ELECTRICAL SYSTEMS, BUT WHEN I ASKED THEM, YOU KNOW WHY WE CANNOT USE ELECTRIC OR FIELD HOUSE THEY TOLD ME IT IS A HAZARD. REPORTER: AFTER SEEING PRACTICE BY CAR LIGHT LAST NIGHT, TODAY WE WENT TO CITY HALL LOOKING FOR ANSWERS. INITIALLY BORO MANAGER INVITES US IN AND PROMISES US A ELECTRICIAN IS WORKING TO GET LIGHTS PUT ON THE TIMER FOR THE TEAM. WILL THERE BEEN LIGHTS ON TONIGHT. YES, THERE WILL BE LIGHTS ON TONIGHT. REPORTER: THINGS TAKE A TURN WHEN WE ASK QUESTIONS ABOUT WHY THE FOOTBALL CLUB WAS LEFT IN THE DARK, IN THE FIRST PLACE. THAT IS IT FOR NOW. REPORTER: WHY WEREN’T THERE LIGHTS ON PREVIOUS OCCASIONS? LIKE LAST NIGHT THERE WEREN’T THE LIGHTS. THAT IS IT, I’M DONE, OKAY, THANK YOU. REPORTER: THEN WE GO BACK TO THE FIELD AND SEE A ELECTRICIAN AT WORK. HE TURNS THE LIGHTS ON SHOWING US THAT EVERYTHING DOES, IN FACT, FUNCTION. WILL YOU BE ABLE TO HAVE LIGHTS ON FOR KID TONIGHT? HE SAYS IT IS NOT HIS CALL HE WILL DO WHAT HE CALLS. IF THE BORO TELLS ME TOO THERE WILL BE. REPORTER: TAKE A LIVE LOOK, AFTER OUR CONFRONTATION AT BOR O HALL THE BORO DID LEAVE LIGHTS ON TONIGHT, FOR THE YOUTH FOOTBALL PROGRAM, BUT IF YOU TAKE A LOOK BEHIND ME AS WE PAN OVER YOU CAN SEE THAT THE CARS ARE LINED UP, THE PARENTS ARE STILL SKEPTICAL, BECAUSE THE COACHES HAVEN’T BEEN GIVEN A KEY, SOCIETY I IS STILL CONTROLLING LIGHTS IN THESE SITUATIONS. YOUTH FOOTBALL PROGRAM WITH THEIR LEASE SAY THAT IS COMPLETELY UNACCEPTABLE AND THEY WILL KEEP AFTER IT, SO WILL WE KEEP AFTER THIS STORY.
