County looking at options for replacing Rec. director

 

     Commissioner Rob Jones said he is considering different options to replace Recreation Department Director Melinda Goss who was dismissed last Thursday.

     Jones said he will present the issue to the recreation and parks board this week to get some input, but that his first thought is to operate with an interim director for the remainder of 2012. He said by delaying it until that time, the full three-person commission can be sworn in and he can enlist the two district commissioners in the hiring process.

     Jones confirmed over the weekend that he had dismissed Goss, who has served as director of the parks and recreation department for the past several years and has worked in the program for the last 21 years. “It was no secret that there were some issues with that program,” he said.

I think to use this ladies name is in poor taste. This is not an elected official. The article could have been written using just her title.

they had to use her name. the public has a right to know who is responsible for "issues" that arise with the use of their tax dollars, and everyone knows who it is anyway. this is basic journalism.

Well since Rob is cleaning house, why not look into some other departments. I think a good house cleaning is needed even if its not spring.

I don't understand the article - who is LOGAN?
Article states: "Jones confirmed over the weekend that he had dismissed Logan" but the lead sentence is "Commissioner Rob Jones said he is considering different options to replace Recreation Department Director Melinda Goss who was dismissed last Thursday.".
Doesn't anyone proofread anymore?

Thanks Progress for fixing the article! [Editor's Note: when we do make mistakes we want to correct them. Thanks for pointing this out. I only wish someone had told us before this week's print edition went out with the same mistake.]
