Minneapolis Park Board seeking public input on next superintendent
The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board voted earlier this year to start a search for a new superintendent. Now the Park Board is now asking for the public's input as it begins the official search process.
Superintendent Jon Gurban's contract ends June 30. We wrote about Gurban and his controversial tenure last month. Check out the story here.
If you've got an idea of what you want out of the park's next leader, there are several ways to have your voice heard.
Check out your options below.
