Wow! That is a lot of money. We do have a great park system here in Nashville, but do we need five Assistant Directors? Five Assistant Directors at over $100,000 each? I think I see a place to cut the budget.
Please, some council member: Ask about that during the budget hearings. How many Assistant Park Directors do they have in Lexington Ky; in Asheville, North Carolina; in Austin, Texas? Have we ever considered reorganizing the department? What does an Assistant Director do? How long have we had five assistant directors?
