LEMOORE — The city of Lemoore is looking to hire a new parks and recreation director after the former director resigned to take another job.
City Manager Nathan Olson said Jason Glick, who was hired as the parks and recreation director by the city in 2016, resigned from his position a few weeks ago to take a job offer at the Tulare County Office of Education.
Before taking the job in Lemoore, Glick was a former recreation supervisor in Visalia. He said Glick commuted to Lemoore from his home in Visalia.
Olson said the resignation was also family related; Glick is going to have the opportunity to coach his son’s basketball team.
“He left on good terms,” Olson said. “There’s no animosity whatsoever.”
Currently, Olson said Assistant City Manager Michelle Speer has taken over duties of the department until a new director is hired.
