From a city of Mission Viejo press release:

Mark Nix, who has worked as Fountain Valley's Community Services manager for the past eight years, has been named the city's new Recreation and Community Services director. 

Mark comes to the city of Mission Viejo with a wealth of experience in the recreation and community services field. During his Fountain Valley tenure, he oversaw operations and programming of two community buildings, a 78-acre sports park and 18 neighborhood parks as well as managed the department's budget and 55 full- and part-time employees. He also held positions in the cities of Cypress and Tustin.

As a Mission Viejo resident, Mark has been active in the volunteer Mission Viejo Activities Committee and is the creator of and driving force behind the committee's annual "Up in the Air" event held in the spring at the city’s Oso Viejo Community Park. 

"As such, he is already familiar with the Mission Viejo creative spirit, standards of excellence and personal commitment to the residents we serve," said City Manager Dennis Wilberg. "I know Mark will make a great addition to our outstanding Mission Viejo team."

Mark will begin his new post on May 12.

It's about time. Mark Nix will start his job on 05/12/2014. The question is how will he address the need for new public restrooms @ our 50 parks?
