Park Board

The Morris Park Board is composed of five members appointed by the Morris City Council.  The five members should be residents of the City, but members could be selected from the County by the City Council if it is in the best interest of the City.  The Public Works Director and Community Education and Recreation Directors shall be appointed as ex-officio members.  

The term for members is two years staggered with other members. 

The Park Board may establish written policies regarding the use of the City’s park and recreational spaces.  Such policies once developed shall be subject to confirmation by the City Council.  The policies shall include matters of scheduling, use rates, and damage deposits.  The Park Board shall have the power to make recommendations to the City Council with regard to the development, improvement, and maintenance of existing and proposed park facilities in the City.  On or before August 1 of each year, the Park Board shall submit to the City Manager proposals with regard to the public facility, development, and improvement to be included in the budget for the upcoming year.  Those budget proposals shall be given due consideration by the City Manager in preparing the overall park budget. 

The Park Board shall meet at least quarterly and at such other times as may be necessary.  The board normally meets the 2nd Wednesday of each month at 5:00 p.m. in the City Hall Conference Room.
