Parks Board


The Parks Board typically meets three times a year.

About the Board

The Park Advisory Board is appointed by the Blue Earth County Board of Commissioners to advise them and the Park Department. The input the Park Advisory Board provides can be used to create policies and establish rules and direction for Park Department management and development. On January 25, 1979, the Blue Earth County Park Board was formalized and reorganized (see Constitution and Bylaws).
