Kirksville's Lakes, Park and Recreation Commission introduced the newly appointed director Rodney Sadler.

Sadler comes from Belton, Missouri, and was the city's recreation superintendent.

Kirksville Assistant City Manager Ashley Young previously held the position while the city searched for a candidate.

"[I'm] going to be meeting with different stake holders around Kirksville to see what's the need. Figuring out what [sic] that need assessment and where we're going to move forward from here," Sadler said.

Sadler's position was created after Kirksville voters approved the half-cent sales tax in April’s municipal election.

Nearly 70-percent of voters approved the measure.
