Jamestown   (CSi)  The Jamestown City Park Board on a 4-1 vote, approved a memo of understanding to provide mowing and minor general repairs at Frontier Village.  The agreement includes a yearly review, if it extends past 2020.

The agreement estimates about 12 hours of mowing every week for the 24 weeks from May through September.

Park Board Commissioner, Mike Landscoot voted opposed saying the $15 per hour quoted in the understanding did not cover the actual costs of staff and equipment, and not wanting to limit funding to other park properties.

Jamestown Tourism is to manage Frontier Village until such time that a  more permanent arrangement is agreed.  Tourism Director, Searle Swedlund said there is sufficient people and equipment to handle the work.

The Park Board also approved:

Revisions to the Parks and Recreation Department’s employee handbook.

The purchase of another snowblower which will attach to a second skid steer loader

Scheduled a review of its strategic plan for the April meeting.
