Redwood Consolidates Park & Rec Departments 05 Jan 12

The Redwood Falls City Council on Tuesday approved an ordinance that reorganizes the city’s park and recreation departments. Redwood Falls has historically operated the 2 departments as separate entities, but they will now be reorganized into one unified department to allow staff assignments to be managed in a more efficient manner. The proposed changes also reduce the number of department managers that report directly to the City Administrator from 3 down to 1. Current Redwood Area Community Center Manager Jackie Edwards will be reclassified to Parks and Recreation Director.
