Jefferson, OH. Ashtabula Metroparks has hired experienced native Ashtabula Countian Brett Bellas as its first Operations Manager. Bellas, who hails from Rock Creek, spent the past eighteen years with Geauga Park District, most recently as their Maintenance and Construction Manager. “We are fortunate to hire someone with Brett’s experience and skillset away from Geauga Park District. He has volunteered his time and expertise on trails, and has been involved with Metroparks since before passage of the Levy”, noted Larry Frimerman, Metroparks’ Executive Director. As Operations Manager Bellas will manage specific park operations and manage maintenance, construction and trail development.
“I have been committed to bringing quality parks and park experiences in my home county. I was active with People for Parks as well as with the Metroparks Advisory Council, commented Bellas.
