Parks & Recreation Advisory Board

The Parks & Recreation Advisory Board consists of seven (7) members, one (1) of which is a City Council Member appointed each December, and two (2) alternate members. In 1982 funds were donated to the City by members of the McKethan Family. The McKethan Park Recreation Committee was formed to oversee expenditures of these funds, mainly for Capital Outlay items. On January 25, 1988, City Council appointed the McKethan Park Recreation Committee as an advisory board for both McKethan and Tom Varn Park. As a result, the name of the committee was changed to the Parks & Recreation Advisory Board. On August 19, 1991, Council adopted Ordinance No. 500 officially establishing the Parks & Recreation Advisory Board and assigning staggered terms of office to the Board Members. Thereafter, appointed members shall serve four-year terms, all expiring in December of their respective term, as amended by Policy No. 4-2008 adopted by City Council 10/6/2008. (Ordinance No. 764 was adopted 09/15/08 rescinding Ordinance No. 500 that established the P&R Board and removing it from the City’s Code of Ordinances. The board remained as it was established at that time.
