Proposal prohibits dancing, alcohol for Fairfield council chamber

By From page A4 | June 20, 2014

FAIRFIELD — Dancing, vigorous exercise or other activities creating the risk of injury would not be permitted – along with alcohol – in a proposed policy for use of the Fairfield City Council chamber.

The proposal, which the council takes up Tuesday, seeks to set clear guidelines about using the site when the council is not in session, according to the staff report signed by City Manager Sean Quinn and Assistant City Manager David White.

Fairfield will charge a $100 cleaning deposit and the site will be available during regular business hours from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

After hours use is for city-sponsored events or by direction of the city manager, according to the policy proposal. No commercial activities or private social functions are allowed. City-sponsored events will have first priority.

The council chamber can booked up for three months in advance but the city can bump organizations if the site is needed for emergency matters.

Council members meet at 6 p.m. in the chamber at 1000 Webster St.

    Ok so I'm going to use the chambers for Fairfield council meetings but I don't want any vigorous (?) activity if it's rented out? That sounds like Marz and Timm not wanting anyone in there but them. What a ridicules set of rules. WTH came up with these? Timm and Marz? Risk of injury? Is this the same with any rental of Fairfield owned buildings? Don't you sign away the cities responsibility for those kinds of injuries? This sound more like not in my back yard or I've got mine and I don't want you near it, nice huh?

    HUH? They waltz right into extravagant costs for consultants and twist their way out of allowing such issues as fireworks all the time. If that aint dancin, I don't know what is! Maybe they imbibe before hand who knows? This is simply another proposal that will get fox-trotted in.
