GREENFIELD — On March 14, the Greenfield City Council authorized an increase in the membership of the Parks and Recreation Committee to include three members of the public. The three public members will serve on the committee with two members of the City Council.
According to Interim City Manager Robert Perrault, “The inclusion of public members will allow for increased public participation in the development and planning of public park facilities.”
The Parks and Recreation Committee reviews park facilities and equipment, and makes recommendations to the City Council regarding these facilities. Currently, the Parks and Recreation Committee consists of two members: Councilmember Walker and Councilmember Santibañez. The Committee originated some years ago and was charged with reviewing park facilities and equipment and making recommendations to the City Council.
Recently, the Committee met and reached the conclusion that the Committee could be more effective if expanded to include public members. The expanded committee will act as a recommending advisory body to the City Council on all matters related to the City’s Parks and Recreation programming.
The City Council will select two members of the public to serve two-year terms, and one member of the public to serve a one-year term. Future committee appointments will be made for two-year terms.
Anyone interested in serving can pick up an application from the City Clerk at 599 El Camino Real, or on the City’s website http://ci.greenfield.ca.us.
Applications must be submitted by 4:30 p.m. on May 5.
