  • Park Maintenance – Responsible for the care and maintenance of all of our parks, recreation facilities and grounds, and for support during recreation programs and events.

  • Recreation – Plans and executes recreation programs for all ages, including pools, sports leagues, special interest classes, senior citizens activities, trips to regional points of interest, and festivals and events.
