Steve Madewell still in running for top Dayton are parks job

First there were five finalists but now there are only two.

And count Steve Madewell as one of the pair still be considered for the executive director's job with the Dayton area Five River Metroparks system.

Madewell is currently the head of Lake Metroparks, an agency that has an annual budget of $16.6 million and 128 full-time employees.

By contrast, Five Rivers has a budget of $27 million with 160 employees.

The land mass managed by Five Rivers is also close to twice that of Lake Metroparks: About 16,000 acres for the former.

A decision on whether Madewell gets the job should be made shortly into February.

However, Madewell previously has told The News-Herald that his current job is not at risk should the Five Rivers Metroparks three-member board of park commissioners select someone else.
