CLINTON - Conditions at the baseball fields at Ash Street have the Clinton Little League concerned.

So president Matt Kobus, while promising volunteers to help out, asked selectmen for support from the town to clear overgrown areas by the Oxford Court area.

"Several uncapped, used syringes were found behind the snack shack," Kobus told selectmen Wednesday night. He said there is a lot of debris being dumped in the area behind Oxford Court and the post office plaza and around the fields.

"We want to clear cut and make it safe," Kobus said.

"It's very disturbing," Selectmen Chairman Dave Sargent said, noting he had heard from parents about syringes there.

In addition to possible help from town departments, selectmen signed off on encouraging better lighting.

Town Administrator Michael Ward said he could move on getting lighting from National Grid, relying on them for the best option, from streetlight to flood light.

The board voted to support "any way it can the endeavors to clean up the field," Selectman Bill Connolly Jr. said.
