Mill Creek MetroParks cuts four more jobs

Posted: Updated:
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -

Mill Creek MetroParks has laid off four more employees as part of what park officials say is a plan to reorganize.

21 News has learned that the three part-time workers include Development Assistant, Lanore Jones; Gardener, Beth Molvin; Plant Curator, Ellen Speicher; and Ranger, Vince Thomas.

The eliminations are in addition to the eight position cuts announced last week.

Those jobs were primarily in middle management; five in park operations, two in horticulture and one in recreation and education.

Park Executive Director Aaron Young says the reorganization comes after a 12-month evaluation of internal operations.

Young says the projected goal is to save approximately $13 million toward a projected $15 million capital improvement shortfall.
