Community Services Commission
The Community Services Commission (CSC) is an advisory group, appointed by the City Council to discuss and provide feedback on City issues relating to recreation, parks, public works and any other issues as directed. The CSC either provides guidance to staff, discusses an issue with others active in the community, or formally recommends a course of action to the City Council. The CSC appoints the Board of Directors to the Friends of Wood Lake (FOWL), a fund-raising organization for the Wood Lake Nature Center.
Issues brought to the CSC for review will typically originate from one of two City departments: Recreation Services and Public Works. The Recreation Services Department includes the Community Center, Wood Lake Nature Center, Outdoor Swimming Pool, Wheel Fun Mini-Golf and the Ice Arena. It is also the department that administers recreation programs and services for all ages and for people with disabilities, park improvement projects and special recreation projects. Issues raised by the Public Works Department may include parks maintenance, streets maintenance, water and wastewater maintenance, transportation and forestry issues.
The CSC appoints the Board of Directors to the Friends of Wood Lake (FOWL), a fund-raising organization for the Wood Lake Nature Center. For more information about the Friends of Wood Lake, contact Nature Center Manager Paul Smithson at 612-861-9366 or visit the FOWL web page.
The CSC holds monthly meetings on the third Tuesday at 7:00 p.m. at the Richfield Municipal Center.
