The Union Township Board of Trustees voted Wednesday to add a supervisor of parks and recreation to the current staff.
The position will be on a probationary status until fully approved. Board members were excited to welcome the new position to help maintain the parks that Mount Pleasant residents and Central Michigan University students use.
The supervisor would manage all parks and recreation operations, and will be under the supervision of township manager Brian Smith within the two parks in Union Township.
Those with a Bachelor of Science degree with a major in parks and recreation or an equivalent experience are recommended to apply for the new position.
Internships are being discussed and could earn credit at CMU under this position.
