F-T Recreation Chief Returns to Table
The Barrington Parks and Recreation Commission is expected to present its model for a full-time director at tonight's meeting in the library.
A proposal for a full-time recreation director in Barrington returns to the agenda for tonight's meeting of the Parks and Recreation Commission.
Members of the board also will be brought up to speed on projects in Barrington that have a parks and recreation orientation by Town Planner Phil Hervey.
The meeting starts at 7 pm in the Barrington library meeting room on the second floor.
The recreation director proposal is expected to be the same one to be presented to the Barrington Town Council, said President June Speakman, the liaison to the parks and recreation board.
She suggested more than a year ago, when discussion started on this issue, that the board come up with a model and a concept for a full-time director. In the meantime, Town Manager Peter DeAngelis Jr. hired a new part-time director with a charge to take recreation in Barrington in a new direction -- toward leisure services as well as recreation.
Michelle G. Geremia is Barrington's director of recreation and leisure services. She is a part-time employee except during the summer months. Her position is budgeted for 20 hours a week year-round at a cost of about $25,000 a year for salary and benefits.
