This is the entry-level classification of the Park Maintenance series responsible for performing a variety of routine and semi-skilled duties in the maintenance and minor repair of parks, grounds, and recreation facilities. Work is usually supervised while in progress and fits an established structure or pattern. Exceptions or changes in procedures are explained in detail as they arise. As experience is gained, assignments become more varied and are performed with greater independence. This classification is distinguished from the Park Maintenance Technician classification in that the latter performs the full range of semi-skilled and skilled park maintenance duties.
Management reserves the right to add, modify, change, or rescind the work assignments of different positions and to make reasonable accommodations so that qualified employees can perform the essential functions of the job.
