Dvorak, who was not reelected this year, was elected as a commissioner on the board in 2018, and serves as the president of the Grand Forks Parks and Recreation Foundation.

Grand Forks Park Board members oversee the city’s parks, pools, golf courses and other recreational areas. Park District commissioners are paid $4,200 annually for serving on the Park Board.
