Today is the first day on the job for the City's new Superintendent of Parks and Recreation and Erin Gardner begins her new duties with the local collegiate baseball team lease inked after Council last night approved the agreement with the Wizards.
Ms. Gardner was recently hired as part of a reogranization of what for years had been a subset of the Public Works Department, but now Parks reports directly to the Manager.
A program manager position will be filled soon as well.
City Manager Corrivieu told Council last night retired Superintendent John VanBrocklin will assist if needed in the transition including helping to complete talks with the Privateers hockey team.
With so many events and actitivities at the Fairgrounds and other parks, everyone looks forward to Ms. Gardner's presence and a successful summer of events rangins from T-ball to Bill Cosby.
