The city of Seymour now has a park board.
Disbanded for nearly two years, a new five-person Seymour Park Board was appointed last Thursday by the Seymour Board of Aldermen.
Members include Eric Bennett, Andy Johnson, Trena Johnson, Michael Kyle and Kari Scislowicz.
The group’s inaugural meeting will arrive later this month.
City Administrator Hillary Gintz said that in the coming year, the park board will have a budget and will have several tasks before them in terms of managing and operating the city’s parks and programs.
“I’ll be very involved with this new board,” Gintz said at Thursday’s meeting.
