Park Director Report: Laurie Montgomery: Easter event went well. Registration printouts were not able to be used in the format they were received but were not needed in the end as the Governor updated outside events capacity before the event. Baseball practice was being held even though locations were supposed to be empty. With refusal to leave the field after requests from council member cops were called.

Open Public Session: David Funk : questions in regards to Flag Football. Questioned why practices cannot be held by their team coaches. With the costs entailed there should be practices for new incoming players learning the game. The recreational board was unsure why practices were not allowed and would look into the matter with Judy Simpson. The board agreed that practices should available if the coach for that individual team is available to hold them.
Matthew Brynick: Asked who is responsible for the bathrooms during sporting events. Each individual sport should make sure bathrooms are open and ready for use.
