The Recreation Board shall exercise and possess all of the powers set forth in Ohio Revised Codes 755.12 - 755.18 inclusive, unless otherwise set forth by City ordinance.

The objective of the Clyde Recreation Board is to provide safe and enjoyable activities for all ages. Seasonal Recreation Program workers and a part-time Recreational Programmer are under the direct supervision of the Parks and Cemetery Superintendent. Over the years, the Recreation Board has expanded the Recreation Program significantly by adding new activities as well as increasing the number of participants involved.

Composition & Term

The Recreation Board shall consist of five persons, three of whom shall be electors of the city and two members may be electors of the Clyde-Green Springs Exempted Village School District. One member of the Recreation Board shall be by appointment from the Clyde-Green Springs Exempted Village School District Board of Education. Said board member shall be appointed by Council to serve concurrently with the Board of Education member's term in office or until said member ceases to be a member of such board of education. In the event no member of said board of education accepts such appointment, then the board of education shall recommend a qualified elector from the city or from the Clyde-Green Springs Exempted Village School District. However, no recommendation will be accepted, if said recommendation and appointment would reduce the Recreational Board's membership to less than three electors of the City. Members of the Recreation Board shall serve without pay.

Recreation Board to Supervise

All parks, play lots, and playgrounds, now designated as such or hereafter acquired and designated as a park, play lot, or playground, shall be under the supervision of the Recreation Board for recreational purposes.

The Recreation Board is authorized to adopt and enforce reasonable rules and regulations relating to the operation and use of the parks, play lots, and playgrounds under their supervision.
