Bob Easton, executive director of the Foothills Park and Recreation District, announced last week he is leaving his position, ending more than 31 years as a district employee.
Easton, who began working for Foothills in 1974 as superintendent of parks, will serve as executive director through Dec. 31. He plans to continue Foothills’ campaign for a mill-levy boost as a part-time consultant through June 2008.
“As far as why, it just seemed like the right time,” Easton said. “Thirty-one years here has been a very rewarding career for me.”
