New Olander Park interim director

SYLVANIA, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Tuesday was the first day on the job for new interim director Erika Buri at Olander Park.

Buri has been with the Olander Park system for 13 years, and was serving as the conservation manager.

The former director, Gary Madrzykowski, resigned after admitting to borrowing about $2,500 from the park for personal use.

Buri says everyone has been working together to make sure no park services are affected.

"We've all chipped in and helped and everyone's shouldered extra weight to try and get things done so it's been great," said Buri.

She says over the next few months she will be working on wrapping up the summer season, and starting to organize fall events.

There is no word yet on how long Buri will fill the position.
