The City of Rifle Parks and Recreation Department is seeking candidates to fill vacancies in the Parks and Recreation Advisory Board. The Parks and Recreation Advisory Board (PRAB) works in an advisory capacity to staff and City Council in matters pertaining to Parks and Recreation, such as master planning, programming, development of policies, capital project prioritization, and review of the annual budget.
The PRAB consists of 7 regular members, plus 1 alternate member who may vote during the absence of a regular board member. Currently, one vacancy is for a regular member, and one vacancy is for the alternate position. Board members serve three year staggered terms. Terms will vary based on the timing of the vacancy and the two open terms end in January of 2023. Candidates must live within Rifle city limits.
Candidates will be interviewed by the Parks and Recreation Advisory Board. The board will then make a recommendation to Council for the appointments.
The Parks and Recreation Advisory board generally meets 2 times per month on Monday evenings at 5:30 p.m., (one week prior to Rifle City Council meetings).
Interested persons may obtain an application and/or more information by contacting the Parks and Recreation Director at firstname.lastname@example.org
Applications will be accepted until close of business on Thursday November 12th, 2020, with appointments occurring at a December City Council meeting. Appointed board members will be oriented and assume duties in January of 2021.
