Description for Oakdale Park Manager Supplied by Ronald Bruce at Glen Rose Town Council 9/13/2010

16 September 2010 at 8:28:48 AM

Thank you, Peggy Busch, via open records





  1. Must have people skills
  2. Experience a plus but not a requirement, can train
  3. Scheduling ( lifeguards and housekeepers)
  4. Order supplies
  5. Assist in budget preparation
  6. Overseeing all Oakdale employees
  7. Oversee pool
  8. Inventory reports
  9. Handling promotions and events for Oakdale
  10.  Daily cash flow
  11.  Enforcement of city policies and procedures
  12.  Responsible for making reservations for cabins, RVs, and convention center
  13.  Weekly reports to City Superintendent and City Council
  14.  Attend city council meetings as needed
  15.  Responsible for keeping all lifeguard certifications up to date
  16. Responsible for overall general appearance of Oakdale Park


At the meeting on Sept 13, 2010, it was decided that this description was not specific enough and that there should be more research done to compare, for example, what other parks required for their managers. It was also lacking any pay scale. VIDEO from that discussion.

Opinion. This appears to be a low skill level, where experience is a plus but someone can be trained. The person who is currently acting as temporary manager appiled originally to be summer help for the snack bar.

Questions: Who would be the trainer? 
From what training? If the person is resopnsible for the lifeguards, would he or she also have to have a certification so that he/she knew that the lifeguards shouldn't be hanging out by the snack bar or sitting down by the pool?

UPDATE: 11/10/2010-this is the latest iteration of that job description.

After reading the City Superintendents job description for an Oakdale Manager, It looks like we need a new City Superintendent and Parks Manager.  The New Oakdale Manager should have all the above mentioned requirements: Plus the experience of running a money producing RV park, City Swimming Pool, Events Co-ordinator, Strong mamagement skills.  Not someone that likes people and can be trained. TRAINED by whom? We need someone that has been trained & has a proven track record, that can bring fresh workable ideas to Oakdale. Lets get out of this rut and get Oakdale up and running.
