Charles City, Iowa – Charles City’s new parks and recreation director starts today and he’s no stranger to the town or agriculture.
Tyler Mitchell is taking over for the soon-to-be retired Steve Lindaman.
Mitchell is a 2011 Charles City High School alumn and then graduated in 2015 from Iowa State. Before taking the post, Mitchell worked at the ISU research farm in Nashua.
His background he says is a perfect pair for the new gig.
He grew up on a farm near Charles City showing cattle and being heavily involved in the livestock industry, just another piece Mitchell finds advantageous to his new post.
He says he’s been transitioning into the director’s spot by Shadowing Lindaman.
Mitchell added he’s already received phone calls about the new job.
