The Decorah Parks and Rec administrative assistant position has been reclassified by the city.

At its meeting last week, the Decorah City Council voted unanimously to move the position from a pay grade of 5 to a pay grade 6 based on the recommendation of City Manager Chad Bird and City Clerk Wanda Hemesath.

In addition to being in a higher pay classification, the reclassification also provides an opportunity for performance increases. There will be no increase in pay until the regular cost-of-living increase which is effective July 1, according to Hemesath. Judy Syverson is the Park-Rec administrative assistant.
