CLEARFIELD — The city is accepting applications for its Parks and Recreation Commission.

The commission comprises up to nine appointed Clearfield residents and acts as the eyes and ears of the community for issues that pertain to parks and recreation.

Each commissioner is assigned a specific park to monitor for problems such as vandalism, broken equipment and trees. The commission meets monthly, every third Wednesday, and helps with the city’s special events such as the Easter Egg Dive, Trails Day, the annual Fourth of July celebration, Halloween Boo-nanza and Santa’s Workshop.

Commissioners are appointed by the Clearfield City Council and serve a three-year term. Those interested should submit a letter of intent to Eric Howes, community services director, 55 S. State, by Jan. 20.
