Posted: Monday, February 7th, 2011 at 6:23 am

In an effort to streamline government operations at the city level, a community board merger has recently been proposed to the City Council. Pella Administrative Services Director Jenny Hesseltine says the community center board, parks board and the recreation commission will be merged into one board called the Community Services Board. Hesseltine says the move is necessary as the role of her department and other city departments has changed over the years, and this will help deliver services to residents more efficiently.
