Statement from Scotia-Glenville Lions concerning Collins Park Splash Pad:
The Daily Gazette reported on Dec 11, 2017 that the Scotia-Glenville Lions Club has filed a lawsuit against a contractor. We are seeking to recover money from the contractor for a Splash Pad that was not completed to specifications, and as such would not pass inspection and could not be opened.
We apologize for not being able to report on this sooner to our many donors and supporters. On advice from legal counsel, we remained quiet in an effort to resolve this matter without going through the courts. However, we were unable to reach a resolution and were forced to seek an alternative route to recover money via the courts.
First, the Scotia-Glenville Lions Club is 100 percent committed to seeing this project through to completion and are working on securing another contractor to complete the splash pad for an opening in 2018.
Further, we are also committed to ensuring that we recover money from the original contractor and applying it toward the splash pad project. While we seek recover money from the original contractor, the Lions will continue to raise funds to complete the project as soon as possible. We appreciate your patience as we work through these challenges and your continued support.
We ask that Splash Pad supporters and the public not contact the contractor about this matter. Please allow it to be rectify properly. If you have additional questions please reach us at CONTACT US.
