Duties and responsibilities of the Parks and Recreation Advisory Board include advising the City Council and staff in all matters pertaining to Parks and Recreation. This Board is also charged with making recommendations to the City to help protect and preserve the City’s environmental resources through education and recommending environmental programs and services. This is done in coordination with appropriate State and Federal agencies.
