Calaveras Board Gives Nod To Park Agency

Sponsored by:

San Andreas, CA — The first step in creating a Calaveras County Parks and Recreation Agency has been completed.

Tuesday the Board of Supervisors showed support for the concept of creating a countywide parks agency by including a parks manager position in their 2007-2008 budget recommendations.

This was the proposal of the Parks and Recreation Task Force, which presented its final report to the board Tuesday.

The report recommended establishing a Parks and Recreation Agency, hiring a parks manager and creating a parks and recreation commission.

A resolution forming the commission is expected next week while a work plan on the rest is forthcoming.
