Are my high tax dollars paying for people to come in on the orange line and from other towns to use the tennis courts that we pay for?????? How can we stop users of these places that we pay to maintain? Can someone suggest to the city members a way to stop this FREE ABUSE of EVERETT TAXPAYERS$$$$$!!

I won't post the location publicly, However the city members need to design a swipe card membership for the residents or owners of property in Everett that actually pay for the property!!! There is a sign about a permit to use the courts, however Asian teams from Boston and Malden in on the MBTA to use the FREE RESOURCES I would be happy to participate in this crackdown of my tax dollars being WASTED!I would be happy to ID anyone in that PARK??? That We pay for EVERYONE IN THE STATE OF MASS "It's Free"

I'm confused. Is this about city owned property or an apartment building? If it's an apartment building, then bring up to the landlords and have them lock it down. If this is city owned we have ward meetings coming up. I would bring it up then and see if anyone else is experiencing the same problem and what city officials can do about it. I cant see handing out key cards to every resident in the city, but you could possible come up with some kind of conclusion.

Maybe more people will speak out about it if they know it's happening to someone else.

The schedule is below.

Wednesday, September 19th - Ward 1 - Connolly Center - 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.

Wednesday, September 26th - Ward 2 - Keverian School - 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.

Wednesday, October 3rd Ward 3 Recreation Center - 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.

Wednesday, October 10th Ward 4 Pope John High School - 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.

Wednesday, October 17th Ward 5 City Hall Council Chambers - 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.

Wednesday, October 24th Ward 6 Madeline English School - 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.

My kids used the tennis courts in Malden for years. What's the problem? How is this costing anybody any money? Focus your energy on more important things like crime and overpaid employees.

Its for recreation. People from Everett no doubt go to other cities and use their facilities as well FOR FREE! How many of you have ever gone to Pine Banks Park and used their facilities? Do you live in Malden or Melrose? I thought so. You people are so Facked up its rediculous! Oh my money my park. Screw you its the PUBLICS parks! Why don't you also ban all the softball players who play mens and womans who live in another city but play in OUR leagues? Your an idiot!
