The commission directed its attorney, Abbagail Geroux of Dalsted & Ryan P.C., to prepare the contract and authorized Mindi Schmitz, commission chair, to sign the contract on behalf of the Jamestown Parks and Recreation district.

The commission approved hiring Amy Walters for the Parks and Recreation executive director position at a commission meeting on Monday, Nov. 1. The hiring of Walters will not be official until she accepts the executive director position with a salary.

The contract is for a one-year term at the rate of $92,000 and includes a $200 vehicle allowance per month and an individual cellphone plan.

The commission went into executive session for about an hour citing North Dakota Century Code 44-04-19.1.
