Dick Perpall laughs recalling his first day on the job at the Madison County Recreation Department: April 1, 1979.
Of course, Perpall’s job commitment was no April Fool’s joke. He was in it for the long haul.
Madison County’s long-time recreation department director announced his upcoming resignation from the county government position at the county commissioners’ Tuesday budget work session. Perpall’s resignation will take effect July 1.
Commissioners offered kind words for the outgoing rec leader.
