SEPRD Welcomes Interim Executive Director

At a special meeting held on April 1, 2015, The Sunset Empire Park and Recreation Board unanimously voted to have Special Districts Association of Oregon ask the District’s former general manager, Mary Blake, to serve as interim executive director until the new executive director is hired. She accepted!

While the department managers have continued with various duties and responsibilities within their departments, Board Chair Michael Hinton believes it’s important to have an interim executive to oversee the various departments.

The Board will be hiring a new executive director by July 1, 2015. The public is invited to share their thoughts at the April 15th Board Meeting at the Bob Chisholm Community Center, 1225 Ave A., at 5:15 PM.
