CLEARFIELD -- Clearfield residents who would like to have an influence on the city's parks and recreation programs are invited to apply to become an appointed member of the Parks and Recreation Commission.
The commission consists of up to nine appointed Clearfield residents and acts as the eyes and ears of the community for issues that pertain to parks and recreation.
The commission provides the residents' perspective when it comes to helping city administrators and elected officials evaluate the appropriateness and effectiveness of city programs, activities and services, a city news release states.
Each commissioner is assigned a specific park, which they monitor for problems such as vandalism, broken equipment, trees and so on.
The commission meets monthly -- every third Wednesday -- and helps out with community services special events, such as the Easter Egg Dive, Breakfast with Santa, Boo-nanza, the annual Fourth of July celebration, and Wasatch Wing & Music Fest.
Currently there are two openings on the commission.
Commissioners are appointed by the Clearfield City Council and serve a three-year term.
Those interested in being appointed are asked to submit a letter of intent to Eric Howes, Community Services director, 55 S. State St., by March 22.
