(Sept. 13, 2019) The following took place during Tuesday’s Recreation and Parks Committee meeting.
The committee voted to approve Eagle’s Landing fees and charges, which will be presented to the mayor and City Council for approval.
Members of the committee voted to edit the following policies:
Use of Senior Center PPM 600-12 – committee members eliminated it because the current language implies that any nonprofit group could call the Recreation and Parks Department and rent the space. Ocean City owns the facility, but Worcester County funds and operates it. This makes coordinating facility use unnecessarily complex.
Movie viewing policy PPM 600-2 – the committee eliminated this policy because it was created for use at Camp Horizon, and is no longer relevant.
Transplanting proposal – the committee eliminated this policy because the department no longer owns a tree spade.
Donations of trees to Rec and Parks PPM 600-10 – the committee eliminated this policy because the department no longer owns a tree spade, so tree and shrub donations cannot be received.
Donations of benches, trees and other items for public parks and buildings PPM 600-20: the committee edited this policy because there are currently no public spaces available for tree and bench donations. Other donations will be handled on a case-by-case basis.
