Legal counsel to review proposal, issue report
The Mill Creek MetroParks board revisited a tabled motion that would require the executive director to obtain public board approval for major decisions affecting the park, this time granting its approval.
At a meeting at the MetroParks Farm Thursday, the board unanimously voted in favor of the motion first proposed last month by board member Tom Shipka. This time around, it features the caveat that legal counsel will review the proposal and issue a report on it the next month.
Shipka, who joined the board in June, proposed the motion in reaction to Executive Director Aaron Young’s implementation in February of staff cuts that were not publicly approved by the board. Young discussed the internal reorganization with the board, but acted on it unilaterally.
