The City of Hannibal is taking steps to regain possession of Clemens Field.

The city contends the Hannibal Cavemen organization is in violation of their lease due to unpaid bills and a lack of maintenance. Co owner Rick DeStefane is disappointed that the city has not reached out directly to him regarding the alleged lease violations. He contends the situation can be resolved. City Attorney James Lemon contends that before he became involved—Director of Parks and Recreation Andy Dorian made multiple requests to address lease violations.
