We are seeking a permanent director for the Parks and Recreation Department. The partnership with the YMCA has led to a restructuring of the department, with a focus on parks and trails instead of youth sports and aquatics.
The director is responsible for planning, directing, and managing the County’s parks and recreation budget, programs, facilities, and staff. The successful candidate will have experience with writing and administering grants and designing or working with trails.
The county is also hiring to fill a number of other positions, including a Youth Coordinator for the Drug Free Community Program.
