Member input on JWN Position on Parks Reorganization

The JWN Executive Board would like to submit a letter to the city concerning the reduction of park maintenance staff. We want to request that more staff be dedicated to park cleaning crews.

City parks has recently moved an entire crew off of parks and onto street medians. The result is the remaining staff must cover twice as many parks and this means less service. Considering the heavy use of JWN parks, we feel this is ill-informed.

Come to the March General Meeting for a discussion or email us.
