The City of Russellville has voted to terminate its Parks and Recreation Director. Sources say 41 year old Chad Mark Sears had held the position for approximately 12 years. The decision was made in a three hour executive session after which the city council announced that the position was open to applicants.
Sears is a graduate of Russellville High School and played football at UNA. He later joined the Buffalo Bills professional football team and remained there for a short while before returning to the Shoals. Sears has a degree in Recreation Administration and had previously been called an asset to the city’s recreation department.
