Nashville parks director resigns; search for replacement underway

Wendy Harris

The city of Nashville has begun advertising for applications to fill the vacant position of parks and recreation director.

Parks director Wendy Harris submitted her resignation last week. On Wednesday, the Parks and Recreation Commission met in what was called an ‘emergency’ session. After a brief executive meeting, the commission voted to accept the resignation; declare the position open; and to launch a search for her replacement, according to commission chairman Freddie Horne.

Applications will be taken until Sept. 18. A resume is required, and application forms are available at city hall.

The salary range advertised is from $38,000 to $45,000 depending upon qualifications. The advertisement for the position can be found in this issue of the ‘News-Leader.’

Harris was an eight-year veteran of the park when she was promoted to full-time director at the Nashville City Council meeting of Feb. 28. The vote to name her parks and recreation director was 8-4.
