Grand Traverse County Reviews Parks & Recreation Budget

More budget discussions in Grand Traverse County — today the county commission listened to a presentation from the Grand Traverse County Parks and Recreation Department.

The county is currently going through each department, to determine where they should make changes to help pull them out of their $1.7 million deficit.

Today, Jason Jones, Director of the Parks and Recreation Department, presented them with an outline of the department, facilities, and revenue.

Commissioners will take a deeper look into the presentation, and all other departments, before making a final decision – but the Parks and Rec Department is hoping any changes will have a minimal effect on park users.

The final budget meeting will be held March 5th.
