NORWICH – Operating a profitable county-owned recreational park became even bleaker last week with the announced resignation of its 12-year veteran manager.
Gaius Cook Park Manager Jason Cannistra told members of the county’s buildings and grounds committee that he would be taking a job with the highway department in the Town of Afton in a few weeks. Acting Superintendent of Buildings and Grounds Brian Aikens said he would immediately begin searching for Cannistra’s replacement. “Jason needs to show people how to shut down the camp for the winter,” he said. The park, which is in the Town of Greene, closes Sept. 30.
