Caneyville Mayor James Paul Embry advised the couple the commission played no role in the program except to provide the field for ball program.
The Richardsons questioned the commission about putting together a T-ball league even if the softball and the little league programs did not work out for the 2009 season.
The commission did agreed to allow the couple to have a t-ball league and encouraged them to contact other members of the community to re-form the Caneyville Recreation Board, which is separate from the Commission.
The commission expressed their appreciation for the couples willingness to help and encouraged them to contact the board members to inquire of the status of the program.
