Council ends stalemate on park director pay


Follow The Republic:


Columbus city councilmen ended a stalemate over the park director's pay Tuesday, but not before engaging in a combative exchange with Mayor Kristen Brown about who controls the city parks.

Councilmen unanimously reinstated a range of $58,000 to $84,000 for the director's position, money that had been moved to the parks marketing coordinator salary on Jan. 21. They also restored a range of $28,000 to $40,000 for the parks marketing coordinator. Both positions are vacant.

The move paves the way for the hiring of a new parks director, to be appointed by Mayor Kristen Brown and then requiring approval from the four-member Columbus Parks and Recreation Board.
