Hetrick will provide an update on the department, which is responsible for planning, organizing, supervising, and coordinating a comprehensive plan of leisure activities for the citizens of Oak Ridge, a press release said. It is also charged with providing safe and well-maintained facilities for its patrons. The department maintains more than 30 city-owned properties, including athletic fields, horticultural displays, playground areas, tennis courts, community center buildings, and swimming pools.
Hetrick graduated from the University of Tennessee in 1994 and became a resident of Oak Ridge in 1996. He has been an employee of the city Parks Division since 2003 and director of Recreation and Parks since 2014. He and his wife MacKenzie have five children.
