Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board chooses new superintendent

- The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board has a new superintendent.

Commissioners voted to approve the nomination of Alfred Bangoura, who is returning to Minneapolis after serving as a recreation superintendent in North Carolina. Before working there, he was employed with the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board for 14 years. 

He takes over a board that was the subject of a Fox 9 investigation after a DFL political operative and friend of the Park Board president was hired as a lobbyist. 

The new position pays $114,000 a year, but was broken up in two six-month terms, meaning it never went to a vote and there was never a public hearing.
