The Otsego City Council hired its first Park and Recreation manager on Monday.
Ross Demant, one of more than 50 applicants for the position, was selected after two rounds of interviews with two different panels.
Demant has experience in recreation programming and a strong background in park maintenance and development. He will also serve as staff liaison to the Parks and Recreation Commission. His first priority will be to secure entertainment for the upcoming free summer events and programs.
“We feel we have a good candidate that will get the program up and running to a good start,” said Otsego City Administrator Lori Johnson.
