The Supervisor of Parks and Urban Forestry performs a variety of functions related to the general overall maintenance of all City parks and recreational areas, and also performs functions related to the care and maintenance of trees and shrubs, including pruning, planting, removal, and evaluation. He presents education programs on trees, parks, and landscaping topics; coordinates the memorial tree program; and is available to answer questions regarding trees and parks. The City’s Tree Trimmer and Tree Trimmer Helper report to the Supervisor of Parks and Urban Forestry. In addition, several seasonal employees are hired each year to assist with upkeep of the parks and also work at the miniature golf course.

The use of parks' facilities for all programs such as youth baseball, softball, Legion baseball, Acme baseball, tennis, volleyball, and youth soccer, are scheduled by City personnel.
