(BEDFORD) - Mayor Shawna Girgis is now accepting applications for the Parks Department manager position.
Mike Mitchell announced his plans to retire.
Those interested can find a copy of the job description on the city's website via Quick Links and applications should be submitted to her at City Hall by May 28.
Girgis says the new parks director needs to have experience and training in parks and recreation; be able to work creatively to grow and meet the needs of the city's parks with a limited budget; and be able to work well with our citizens, staff, and city leaders.
Girgis asked the parks board to assemble a group of committed parks and recreation leaders to assist in the selection process. She says the group will review resumes and applicants will be contacted to schedule an interview.
Girgis hopes to fill the position by mid-June.
