The Parks Advisory Board (PAB) consists of eight board members. It makes recommendations to the City Council in regard to the open space planning, parks, and recreation planning and/or purchase, disposal, or trade of such lands. Administrative support is provided by the public works division.
It makes recommendations involving the coordination of the parks and recreation master plan, or future plans, within the City of Plainview Parks Department, recommendations on any matter pertaining to open space, parks, recreation, or land planning problems, and recommendations on priorities for spending funds. The PAB shall not lobby the City Council for appropriations, but will merely make recommendations on how appropriated funds should be expended.
Level of Authority: PAB recommendations regarding fees and rates are considered for approval by the City Council. On other decisions, the PAB is the final authority in these areas of responsibility, unless appealed to the City Council.
