1.0 - Agency Authority, Role, and Responsibility

Delineation of jurisdiction and authority are the foundation upon which the park and recreation agency is organized.  Policy and rule-making functions and the development of procedures to implement policy create the organizational framework.  The mission establishes the organizational purpose, and goals and objectives establish the strategic direction.  Organization values affect how the agency through its leadership and staff relate to other governing bodies, agencies, organizations and how it incorporates input from citizens and staff.
