“As of right now, Joe will be staying here to oversee things at the Community Center,” said Green. “I will be here as well one or two days a week, maybe three.”
Green said some unresolved issues here on the island were the catalyst for the change in plans.
“There’s still some things he needs to tend to,” Green said. “The administration felt it was in our best interests to leave Joe here, and not to pull both of us out. What that means, ultimately, is that we are expediting the process of hiring a supervisor in North Fort Myers.”
The project that Green is working on in North Fort Myers is a new 33,000-square-foot community center. It will require numerous employees to make things run smoothly, and an experienced supervisor to lead them. Since Green has approximately 23 years with parks & recreation services, and has worked with three counties, Lee County turned to him.
Green and Wier were both manning the candy buckets at the annual Easter egg hunt, which had a record turnout in the 0-to-4-year-old age category.
The Boca Grande Community Center averages 75,000 visitors and users each year.
