Support Workshop Agenda

9:30am – Meet & Greet - Bagels, fruit, muffins, yogurt, juice and coffee
9:45 – 10:00am - Welcome from John Safstrom, Parks & Recreation Director
10:00am – 12:00pm - We will be discussing the following questions below

  • What are ways you communicate with internal staff, other city employees to help keep communication lines flowing? Does your boss or City Administrator do anything that works well for your City.
  • How do you keep on top of things for office staff are always getting interrupted? Any tricks of the trade for multitasking?
  • Has anyone done a fun activity with citizens on where are our Parks? Road Rally through Parks to expose families to them? Please bring a copy if you have.
  • How did summer attraction tickets sales go? Any comments to take back to WPRA office?
  • Do you have a scholarship program for people who can’t afford your programs? Where do you get the funds for that program or does the city just lose that money? Bring your guidelines on who gets free or half price programs.
  • Bring themes or special events you have done at your pool over the years. Oshkosh Parks has an amusement park. Does anyone else have an amusement park? What special themes do you have at your Amusement Park?
  • What policies do you feel are important to list in your Park and Recreation guide? For example, weather cancellation, photographs etc.
  • Name one program that you feel went well this summer
  • Do you have something to bring for Show and Tell item. For example, Monroe would bring a picture of how we have labeled our t-shirts for sizing for our programs so parents can see oh yes that is how big a youth large and that is adult medium, pens that have flowers on the end of them so they don’t steal them. Nothing that super original but something that works for your dept.
  • Friends of Parks and Rec: How many have this? How did these groups start and what exactly do they do? How are the funds allocated?
  • Babysitting Training: Do you offer this through the Red Cross? Do you have your own instructor? What are the costs?
  • Facility Reservations: How do you keep people from entering early? What type of lock system do you use
  • County Department questions you would like to ask girls so you feel we are addressing your needs too at these meetings?
