Tuesday’s Parks Board was a no-show

Thursday, September 27, 2018 by Jessi Devenyns

For the first time in a long time, the Parks and Recreation Board adjourned after 30 minutes of casual chit-chat time. Due in part to traffic issues – which seem to be continually causing commissions to convene later than scheduled – only five commissioners showed up to the Sept. 25 meeting. Board Member Frank Ward was on his way to City Hall and would have made the quorum, but was unable to make it in time to beat the city-mandated 30-minute waiting window. As a result, at 6:30 p.m. the board adjourned. Chair Jane Rivera stayed behind just in case presenters or members of the public had pressing concerns that they wished to have her hear.
