Drinking and recreational hockey may be getting out of hand in Gibbons.
In October, council passed a motion to ban the usage of alcohol and cannabis in town facilities. At a recent town meeting, a report was brought forward claiming the rules weren't being followed.
"Since that policy had passed, the organization of the men's hockey league was fully notified and provided with all the information. Out of the eight teams, five of them have breached that policy already," said Gibbons CAO, Farrell O'Malley. "We can't turn a blind eye."
Simply put, the town doesn't want to be on the hook for any related liability issues.
"I don't begrudge anyone who wants to go for a cold beer after a game, but you need to do it in a licensed facility," said mayor Dan Deck. "We can go full-scale and say that they can't use the facilities."
Administration is writing another letter to the league and individual groups letting them know of the issue.
The Town of Gibbons says further action may be taken if the problem persists.
