A new director has been selected for the Winchester-Clark County Parks and Recreation Department, the parks board announced Monday night.
Winchester resident Jeff Lewis will replace Geri Remley, who left the position in December after two years to lead the parks and recreation department in Scott County.
Board chairman Charlie Eury said Lewis was selected because of his strong military career, and the work he did leading a juvenile detention center in Jackson.
“That’s really what stood out in his application and doing the references. They all confirmed what an outstanding job he did there (at the juvenile detention facility),” Eury said.
