Brookhaven, GA, March 21, 2016 – The Post Reports – When Brookhaven’s City Council meets for a regularly scheduled meeting on Tuesday, March 22nd, they will consider dissolving the Parks and Recreation Advisory Committee.
The Committee was established just over a year ago on March 15th, to serve the purpose of researching issues facing the Parks and Recreation Department and to advise the Director.
Additionally, the Committee was charged with reviewing investigations, reports and items referred by the Parks and Rec. Director, the City Manager or the Mayor and City Council and provide a recommendation on those items.
But since inception, the Parks and Rec. Advisory Committee has struggled with having enough members attend the regularly scheduled meetings in order to achieve a quorum, which is required to have an “official” meeting.
As a result, and also at the request of Committee Members, the City will consider dissolving the Committee in favor of later establishing an advisory board or a Parks and Rec. Authority with a similar, but more defined role.
