The Winchester-Clark County Parks and Recreation Department will be advertising this week for a new aquatics director after the resignation of aquatics director/programmer Mandy Faulconer.
At a special Monday, the board accepted the resignation of Faulconer, head lifeguard Wendy Robinson and swim instructor Cheryl Robinson, all of whom resigned last week. The board then authorized Parks Board Chairman Charlie Eury to advertise the aquatics director and head lifeguard positions.
In other business, the board approved hiring Darrell Pryor as full-time Parks and Recreation Department maintenance supervisor at a salary of $13.50 per hour to replace Ken Davis, who retired last fall.
Pryor was chosen over three other candidates who were interviewed for the position.
“It was a tough call. But what stood out was his supervisory skills,” Eury said. “I felt he would be the best fit interacting with the community and his subordinates.”
The board also approved the adoption of a standards of operating procedures manual for the natatorium.
The manual is a result of a lot of time and work by Parks and Recreation director Geri Remley, Eury said, gathering information from other existing natatoriums in other towns and compiling it into the document that the board had before them.
