  • The Wellington Advertiser - Ice Jam promoters move event to Bissell Park, forget to ask for permission
    What we would be doing is placing as massive tent in the eastern parking lot of Bissell Park so that grass in the park would be unaffected Everything would be on top of the crushed stone gravel parking lot Ralston said the licensed area would be within the tent and possibly a small area where the food vendors would be located Essentially it s just a huge tent over the gravel parking lot He estimated the tent to be 60 feet by 150 feet Ralston said the event would be self supporting in terms of services We would be bringing in our own power water grey water tanks etc he said A letter from Riverfest director Shawn Watters added Bissell Park also provides additional opportunity for winter events such as ice skating the use of the KIPP ovens and snow sculpturing The park location is all within walking distance of downtown which is tremendous value to our event Detzler stated his report noted a number of items he would like to see covered off from Centre Wellington s perspective He also advised council we came across this rather late in the process His report stated that on Jan 25 community services became aware through social media that the Ice Jam event scheduled for March 5 was being promoted to take place in Bissell Park Upon checking our booking system we were surprised that the event was being promoted through social media at Bissell Park even though we had not received any request from event organizers to secure this venue said Detzler Staff contacted the organizers to obtain clarification of this information and on Jan 26 received a letter requesting the use of Bissell Park to host the all ages event Detzler said the organizers have stated they are going to do their best to ensure this situation does not happen again But it did catch us off guard Detzler said He noted the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario will require specific details and compliance from Lot 18 Productions with items to ensure public safety As well organizers are required to comply with the Centre Wellington Municipal Alcohol Policy and provide liability insurance of 2 million to the township Event organizers are also responsible to obtain and pay for the appropriate police presence and professional security for the event Volunteers will set up and clean the area in a timely manner Detzler said Being as the event is of a musical nature obviously noise will be generated during the event Event organizers are expected to make personal contact with residents adjacent to Bissell Park to make them aware of the event He also added Lot 18 Productions is responsible to facilitate and pay a rental fee of 1 361 Detzler added that additional required services will be delivered at cost recovery Mayor Kelly Linton wanted to ensure the municipality would be recouping its costs Detzler said the rates listed are the posted rates charged for events in Bissell Park Council
