HEARING REQUIRED:    No Hearing Required      

 

SUMMARY:

 

Chapter 6-2 of the City Code covers the Parks and Recreation Board.  Section 6-2-3 - Duties, covers the duties of the Parks and Recreation Board.  Currently the duties read as follows:

 

                     The parks and recreation board shall advise and make recommendations to the City

Council, and shall advise the Mayor’s Office via the director of neighborhood services on matters concerning the establishment, maintenance and operation of parks within the city.  The Board shall provide input on master plan updates and improvements, and policy development for use of recreational facilities.

 

The Parks and Recreation Board is requesting Council consideration by adding “and recreational activities” to the list of duties so that it would read:

 

                     The parks and recreation board shall advise and make recommendations to the City

                     Council, and shall advise the Mayor’s Office via the director of neighborhood services on

                     matters concerning the establishment, maintenance and operation of parks and recreational

                     activities within the city.  The Board shall provide input on master plan updates and

                     improvements, and policy development for use of recreational facilities.

 

Currently, the Board is somewhat restricted by the list of duties in providing input into recreational activities; since recreation is a portion of the Board title, it seems appropriate to permit their ability to make recommendations on recreational activities.
