Parks Director Staub Will Stay On

There's been a change of heart by the man who heads up the Monroe County Parks Department.  Larry Staub had recently been appointed to fill an open seat on the Monroe County Legislature, and indicated he would be leaving the parks director job.

But now Staub says he notified the president of the legislature that he will decline the appointment to that seat representing parts of Perinton and East Rochester.

Staub says in his 26 years of service to the county, being Parks Director has been the highlight of his career, and has decided he is not ready to leave yet.

Among the challenges Staub still wants to tackle, transitioning the ownership of the golf courses back to the county, developing a new strategic plan for the Seneca Park Zoo, and continuing to improve the Lilac Festival.
