Body

BACKGROUND

 

This action considers an agreement between the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board and Mary Merrill Anderson from January 18, 2018 to October 31, 2018 (Attachment A).

 

If approved, Mary Merrill Anderson will act as a consultant to Superintendent Miller or her designee for the period of January 18, 2018 to February 4, 2018 and as Interim Superintendent on a full-time basis for the period of February 5, 2018 to October 31, 2018.

 

The agreement will be funded from the Superintendent Office’s Budget. The transition of the Superintendent will result in unplanned expenses in 2018 for items like consulting, superintendent search, and severances. If these expenses exceed available funds within the General Fund, the Board will be required to allocate excess general fund balance.

 

Legal counsel has reviewed the agreement.
