Berrien County Parks Director Brian Bailey is retiring after nearly 30 years working for the county. Bailey, a native of the Upper Peninsula, said he found a perfect career fit here in Berrien County.

Brian Bailey of St. Joseph may have retired in May from being the Berrien County parks director, but that doesn’t mean he left the county’s employment.

Bailey has continued in his position as a temporary worker until after the new county administrator, Brian Dissette, comes on board on July 1 and a new parks director is hired.
