Marshall Parks Department to begin hiring for summer season

Wednesday, February 6, 2013

Starting Monday, Feb. 11, the Marshall Parks and Recreation Department will begin receiving applications for summer employment, said Recreation Supervisor Lori Godsey, during the department's board meeting Wednesday, Feb. 6.

Godsey said there will be positions open for concessions, umpires, day-camp supervisors and lifeguards, among others.

"We will start looking at that and we hope to have everyone hired on by the first of April," Godsey said.

Those interested can stop for an application at the department's administrative office, 1538 E. Vest Street, or download it from the department's website.

Parks and Recreation Director Jeff Stubblefield presented the department's monthly finances, which showed a decrease in sales tax of $7,000 year-to-date compared to last year.

The park fund's total expenses for January 2013 were $43,672 compared to $60,108 in January of 2012. The revenue was $79,645 for January 2013 compared to $99,581 in January 2012.

"Everything seems to be going as well as it could," Stubblefield said. "(There is) nothing major or unexpected."

Godsey announced that t-ball, softball and baseball league sign-ups started Friday, Feb. 1 and will continue through March 16. She added there were 11 new sponsors for the leagues.

"We are just so grateful," Godsey said. "It never ceases to amaze me how our businesses and our community supports our summer ball program. I appreciate that very, very much."

Godsey announced that open gym nights will begin Sunday, Feb. 11, and will continue every Sunday from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. until March 17.

Godsey said the park will start offering a new cross training class beginning March 4. "Foothills Fitness" is a six-week, one-hour long class.

"The objective of this workout is to cross train the body for maximum caloric fat burn, tone the body and shed inches," according to a flier about the new program.

For more information about Foothill Fitness, call 886-7128.

In closing, Stubblefield reminded everyone to be careful driving around the park. He said that, as the days get longer and warmer, the park will get busier.

"Our rest period is over," Stubblefield said.
