Parks & Rec annual report presented to the City Council

The Maryville City Council was presented the Maryville Parks and Recreation Annual Report during this week's meeting. Parks and Recreation Director Jeff Stubblefield says attendance at the various Parks Department facilities is up this year.

"About 2000 people from years passed.  Participation is down a little bit but that's pretty much the national trend.  Gave them a synopsis of all the parks and the condition of the parks and the facilities and what our future plans with the park board wanna develop a master plan and some other things we're going to have to address in the near future like an aging aquatic facility that is aging rapidly.  It's 26 years old so it's at the end of its lifespan."

The Maryville City Council also presented Mozingo Lake Recreation Park Recreation Director Brandon Cartwright with the City's first Outstanding Public Servant Award. Cartwright was cited for his work in helping families affected by this spring's floods seek refuge at the Mozingo Campgrounds. Cartwright initially contacted city management about the possibility of providing flood victims free R-V spots and paid for the first three days out of his own pocket to help those families.
