It's been a challenging year so far for the Springfield Park District. It faced a backlash earlier this year after it was discovered the former executive director had created his own policy for paying out vacation and sick time without Park Board's consent. And the fiscal situation is on lean times according to park board president, Leslie Sgro. She recently joined WUIS for this interview:
Want to play golf at the Springfield Park District courses? Previously, you had to call to find out tee times. But a new website will allow you to find and book a tee time online. Paul Loutzenhiser, the district's head golf professional and Lance Flury, the golf pro at the Pasfield course, talked with WUIS' Sean Crawford about it. Lance says along with helping golfers get out on the links, it will benefit the park district.
