Board of Park Commissioners
Last night I was honored by being elected as the newest Chairman of the Village of Scotia, Board of Park Commissioners. Over the last four years I have served on the board led by Tim Keeley. Tim is a near life long time resident of Scotia and had chaired our board for the last eight years. His only reason for stepping down is to enjoy grandkids and retirement in warm and sunny Florida.
My role as Chairman comes at a very challenging time for the village parks. We have some serious problems which need to be solved at a time when funds aren't readily available.
I believe our parks and river front are essential in any economic growth and to maintaining a high quality of life in the entire village. The quality of our parks will be reflected in the quality of new homeowners and new businesses that relocate into our village and surrounding communities.
