Current Council Agenda and Past Meeting Information



Meeting Date: June 12, 2007

Subject/Title: Approve request of Park and Recreation Commissioners to attend the National Recreation & Parks Association (NRPA) annual Congress.

Prepared by: Ken De Silva, Landscape/Facilities Manager

Submitted by: Craig D. Bronzan, Director of Parks and Recreation

Approve by motion a request of Park and Recreation Commissioners Lanny Brown, Ernie Rodrigues, Eileen Hofstadt and Sandra Myers to attend the National Recreation & Parks Association (NRPA) annual Congress in Indianapolis from September 25 to 29, 2007.

City Council approved the 2005/2006 – 2006/07 Operation Line Item Budget at the regular City Council meeting of June 14, 2005. In this budget, monies were budgeted for Park and Recreation Commissioners to attend trainings and conferences which includes the National Recreation and Park Association annual Congress.

Council/Administrative Policy 20-4, “Travel / Expense Policy” Section 4.1 states that “Overnight travel by Councilmembers and Commissioners, except League of Cities, shall be pre-approved by having the item placed on the City Council Consent Calendar”. In each of the past three years, members of the Park and Recreation Commission have attended the NRPA Congress, accompanied by Parks and Recreation Department staff.

The NRPA Congress is the national training Congress where Commissioners and staff have the opportunity to learn about the latest trends, policies, customer services programs, and training requirements that are necessary for parks and recreation agencies. It was at the 2004 NRPA Congress that the Brentwood Park and Recreation Commission was honored as one of three commissions in the country for the outstanding work they have done in Brentwood.

Costs for this conference are included in the City Council proposed 2007/08 – 2008/09 budget. Registration fees and travel expenses of approximately $1,750 per Commissioner, for a total of $7,000 will be charged to the Park and Recreation Commission budget account.
