Chicago has long had a reputation for having an underperforming, underperforming parks department, but that’s about to change.
As part of its ongoing efforts to revitalize the city’s parks, the city will start looking at parks department staff positions and other park functions.
The park department is a highly visible department that has been under scrutiny from the city for a long time, and the city has been looking at it for quite some time.
The mayor has been saying for quite a while that he wants to make the park department more transparent, more responsive, and more responsive to people who live and work in parks.
And he has been very vocal about that in the last several months.
So we are very, very pleased with the progress that has occurred.
We also think that the new mayor will be doing a lot of work to make sure that the parks department is responsive to the people who work there.
So, in other words, we are going to have a good look at this and we will be making recommendations to the new governor, the new state senator, and other members of the city council, and we’ll make recommendations to Governor Emanuel, too.
It’s a very exciting time to be a city park director.
We’ve got a lot more work to do.
It’ll be interesting to see how the city comes out with its recommendations and how the state responds.
We have a lot to do to really improve parks and how we provide for people in our parks.
