Repeal the Unfair Ban on Metal Detecting in Louisville Metro Parks sign now

To the Honorable Mayor Jerry Abramson

A petition to repeal the unfair banning of the responsible use of metal detectors in Louisville Metro Parks

Dear Mr. Mayor,
We the undersigned appeal to you to reconsider the unfair banning of the responsible use of metal detectors in Louisville Metro Parks.
This ban was placed upon local hobbyists without fair representation from them or their elected council members.
Staff members of the Metro Parks Department did not invite nor allow any members of the metal detecting community to address any questions or concerns regarding the hobby.

Furthermore, we the undersigned will make every effort NOT to spend any tourism dollars in city of Louisville until this unfair regulation is lifted.

    Almost all metal detectorists leave parks better than they found them by removing trash that could cause injury such as glass, sharp metal, and needles. They fill in their holes and provide security for children by their presence. Please reconsider.

    Please reconsider your decision to ban metal detecting in Metro Parks. Not only do we find "treasure" but we largely find trash and sometimes hazardous items which we dispose of, illegal items we turn in to authorities. Sometimes we find valuables and str

    My work takes me up that way frequently, I bring my metal detector to relax. I hope you can see that without that option, I may have to keep on trucking.
