The department is receiving ongoing requests for year-round aquatic facilities in the community that will undoubtedly need to be addressed in the future.
Another issue that is prevalent is the inability of people to pay for services. This could include specific programs that are offered both through continuing education or health related services that better help position an individual to compete in the workplace. Provision has been made in the Parks, Recreation and Culture Commission’s operating budget to address some of these inconsistencies with youth, but the adult population is at a disadvantage in this regard.
Another issue would be attempting to generate additional sources of revenue to enable the commission to conduct trail development and other marketing initiatives that will enable our community to better placed in attracting tourists to our area.
