A new parks director will start next week after being selected by the county’s Parks and Recreation Committee.

At a Tuesday night meeting of the Taylor County Fiscal Court, District Four Magistrate Matt Pendleton announced that Chris Ambers has been selected as the county’s parks manager. His employment was also part of the discussion around employee changes.

“He’s going to have a big job ahead of him,” said Pendleton. “I’m excited for him, and I’m excited for the park, and excited for the county.”
