Door County will officially begin its search for a new parks superintendent when its Facilities and Parks Committee meets on Wednesday. Ben Nelson recently left the position after being hired in April 2018. His hiring coincided with the Parks Department merger with the Door County Building and Grounds Department. Door County Administrator Ken Pabich could not go into detail about Nelson’s departure but says the move allowed them to make some other changes as well.
Pabich assures nothing will be missed while the position sits vacant for the next two to three months while they go through the hiring process. He says Facilities and Parks Department Director Wayne Spritka will take over those duties until a new park manager is hired.
