LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – Joe Bumbleburg said he has stepped down from the Lafayette Parks Board after 50 years service.

Lafayette City attorney Ed Chosnek will take over for the time being. Currently there are no plans to bring in another adviser.

Lafayette Mayor Tony Roswarski said he was surprised when Bumbleburg and Ball Eggleston decided to step down.

Unlike other board meetings, the Parks Board lawyer also worked as the board’s secretary. Roswarski said he wanted Bumbleburg to remain as a legal adviser, but not as secretary.

“That’s not something that we do with our other boards and commissions. The attorney gives legal advise, but doesn’t handle those functions. In fact, sometimes we don’t have an attorney come to every board or commission,” said Roswarski.

In January, News 18 reported that Joe Bumbleburg’s son Ted was relieved of his duties as parks superintendent.
