The Rockford Park District will accept applications until July 1 to fill a vacant seat on the board of commissioners left after Chuck Brown died.
Brown died May 18 from complications of a brain aneurysm he suffered on Dec. 5. He was 60. Read more about Brown HERE.
“We are sad for the loss of Chuck Brown and the unfortunate circumstances of his time of service being cut short,” said Jack Armstrong, president of the board of commissioners. “He brought a wealth of experience in public service to the Park Board, and he will be missed.”
Those interested in the job should submit their qualifications to Barb Neville, board secretary, either by mail or in person at the Webbs Norman Center, 401 S. Main St., Rockford.
The appointee must be a registered voter and a resident of the Rockford Park District for at least one year. Applicants must provide proof of both requirements at the time they submit their application.
The names of all applicants will be made public.
Armstrong, Commissioner Nate Martin and Executive Director Tim Dimke will screen applicants before finalists are presented to the full board of commissioners.
The finalists will be interviewed in a special meeting July 26, which will be open to the public. Residents who wish to ask questions of the candidates should submit those questions to Armstrong at the start of the meeting.
