The Gering city council this evening will officially consider referring a discussion on the Gering Parks and Recreation Director position to the council’s Personnel Committee.
The Committee already has a Wednesday noon meeting scheduled to discuss the issue as long time Parks and Recreation Director Ron Ernst approaches his retirement April 6th.
The city’s Human Resources Director Tammy Cooley says the pending vacancy is already being advertised, with the responsibilities entailing the city’s park system, Monument Shadows golf course, the city’s cemetery and Five Rocks Amphitheater.
It’s not known at this time whether the Personnel Committee will consider making recommendations that would reduce or shift some of those responsibilities. The council will make the ultimate decision.
