Hartland resident Michael Rosinski posted a question on the Hartland Patch Facebook page on Monday regarding a "cigar smoking issue" that took place over the weekend during his daughter's soccer game.
While attending the game played at Heritage Park, Rosinski said that during the second half of the U13 girls game, an adult from the visiting team lit up a cigar.
"It really stank," Rosinski wrote in his post. "Now he was from the visiting team, he stood 15-20 yards from everyone but the smell just lingered. The young refs were annoyed by it, one called her dad and he said 'its legal for smoking here, this is township property not a school no smoking zone.'"
After asking the man twice to stop smoking, Rosinski said the man slowly moved away from the crowd and other parents were thankful to him for saying something.
"This is simply wrong," he wrote. "What needs to be done to make this sporting area a "safe zone" for kids? No smoking, no alcohol, no drugs?"
When Hartland Patch asked what the protocol was at Hartland sports fields in regards to smoking in an email, Colleen Rosso, Communications Director for Hartland Township, said the Township was "currently in the process of revising park regulations and will take this issue under advisement."
"Currently, however, no regulation exists that addresses this issue in our parks," she wrote.
