We are a multi-municipal agency serving 5 municipalities in Central PA. The agency operates a total of 829 acres at 52 sites across the region (48 parks, 2 pools, nature center, senior center). The agency is the official “Parks and Recreation Dept.” for each municipality. Since 1966 the agency was created because we can do more, less expensively, through cooperation.
We started with one director and one parks maintenance worker and now we have 18 full-time year-round employees, 80 part-time seasonal, 80 in the school year and 200 each summer. Each supervisor schedules their own seasonal staff: 2 pools, parks maintenance, nature center, senior center, summer camps, etc. Many of the program positions are weather-dependant. The fact that there are multiple, independent sites is a challenge.
Our previous employee scheduling system was paper posted on the various office bulletin boards.
We are pleased that multi-site scheduling is now supported in this work scheduler – along with the other improvements that have been made. There are many other P&R Departments in PA that would be interested in this. We employ many teens who will appreciate this service and we will be happy to tell other P&R agencies about this service.
