Special to The Glendale Star
Two months after replacing Erik Strunk as interim director of Glendale’s Public Facilities, Recreation and Special Events Department, the city announced that Jim Burke would remain in the position full time.
“Jim brings decades of experience and leadership to this important role directly serving our public,” Glendale City Manager Kevin Phelps said. “He understands this region and the needs of our residents, and we are very pleased to have him become a permanent member of our team.”
Burke began the transition into his role last December when he was named interim director of the department.
“Glendale has a very robust parks system, and this is an exciting time with many opportunities to continue to serve those who live, work and play in this great city,” Burke said.
