Park Board meeting, Nov. 5, 2015



The park board met for 20 minutes on Thursday, just time enough to approve the Exceptional Foundation’s December calendar and buy a truck and Senior Center van before saying farewell to long-time board member Tom Blake.

Mr. Blake received a Mayor’s commendation for his 10 years of service. It was mentioned that, although the vacancy has never been announced, the application period for the at-large post has now been closed. A glance at the city’s website shows one applicant, as follows:
