Arts council changes bylaws to remove parks representative


Follow The Republic:


The Columbus Area Arts Council has amended its bylaws to remove an executive committee seat held by Parks and Recreation Board President David Jones.

The arts council executive committee voted unanimously Thursday to remove Jones' parks board seat from the committee, arts council board president Erin Hawkins said.

Jones did not attend the Thursday executive committee meeting.

“A park board member is no longer on our executive committee. That is simply because our funding is no longer coming through parks,” Hawkins said. “It wasn’t about eliminating Dave Jones.”

The arts council also lost parks board member Amy Kleinert, who was on the arts council general board. Kleinert resigned from her board position, Hawkins said.
