responsibilities and duties of the Parks & Recreation Director with the Senior
Citizens Director. However, she stated because the Town Council was in the process
of updating Ordinance #100-016 (rev 1) “An Ordinance Combining Parks And
Recreation Commission and Senior Citizens Commission for the Town of Ledyard” the
Committee withdrew the proposed Job Description until the proposed Ordinance update
work was completed.
Councilor Ingalls stated at their April 26, 2023 meeting the Town Council adopted the
proposed updates to Ordinance #100-016 (rev 1 An Ordinance Combining Parks And
Recreation Commission and Senior Citizens Commission for the Town of Ledyard”.
Therefore, she stated some additional work was done to ensure the draft Job Description
accurately reflected the work that Mr. Johnson, Jr., and was currently doing and was also
in-keeping with Ordinance #100-016 (rev 1). She stated that updating the Job
Description was the final step to complete the process to combine the Parks &
Recreation Department with the Senior Citizens. She noted that Mr. Johnson was
present this evening and she invited him to provide some additional background.
Parks, Recreation and Senior Citizens Director Scott Johnson, Jr., stated the proposed
Job Description was basically a total rewrite to combine the responsibilities of both
positions. He stated approving the proposed Job Description would be the final step in
the restructuring of the staff in the Senior Citizens Center and the Parks & Recreation
Office. He stated functioning as one Department would streamline daily operations
by eliminating the need to open two purchase orders for routine office supplies such
as toner, the as well as the processing of two invoices for services like the printers,
utilities, and other work providing more efficiencies in their office operations.
