The Board meets monthly on the third Tuesday of the month and advises Council on many issues associated with Parks and Recreation.
The Board was established by Borough Council to provide policy guidance on matters relating to all parks and recreation facilities and programs provided by the Borough. Primary concerns of the Parks & Recreation Board include providing adequate parks and open space to meet the needs of the community and providing citizens of Perkasie with a diverse number of programs for people of all ages. Members volunteer throughout the year at various Perkasie events.
The Board consists of 7 members, all appointed by Borough Council, for terms of three years in which the terms of no more than two persons expire the same year. An additional Youth Counselor (non voter) may also be appointed. Members of the Parks & Recreation Board serve without pay, and vacancies are filled by Council for the remainder of the unexpired term.
