Wade Boegli

Brodhead lost a longtime friend to its city parks and recreation programs last month.

“Park and Rec” Director Wade Boegli had already served his last day, Aug. 12, when Common Council took up his resignation. Boegli is leaving a more than 26-year legacy of service to city recreational programs.

In its regular meeting Aug. 15, the city council voted unanimously to ask Boegli to continue part-time while the city searches for a new director. Council also wants him to help transition a new director into the job after a suitable applicant is found.

In city council meeting minutes, the city and library are both now looking for someone to help with snow removal bids. Boegli, the minutes read, would shovel roughly eight city blocks of snow in winter.
