Michael Postma, Jim Martin, and Diana Reed volunteered to serve. <br /> <br />Aquatic and Recreation Programs and Services <br />McKenzie Kiger and Doug Harris, Recreation Supervisors, gave a review of our past year’s <br />program numbers. Discussion for determining how program fees should be set was <br />encouraged. <br />The Comprehensive Study, previously completed, pointed out that our programs need more <br />marketing and more Clive resident participation.

Board member’s <br />suggestions included using vending machines, sending out a survey to ask teams why they left <br />Clive, and that seasonal staff/interns are recruited from area universities to assure higher <br /> <br />
