Mike Pigg, parks supervisor with the City of Billings, MT, was recently recognized with the 2015 New Professional Of The Year award from the Montana Trails, Recreation, & Parks Association.

Mike was credited with developing and implementing a new playground safety program for the City of Billings. With more than 40 public playgrounds, the process required his team to document the equipment at each location and research a tool that would help them efficiently conduct their safety audits.

Pigg settled on CityReporter as his playground inspection tool of choice and his staff are now in the process of conducting thorough inspections of all the play equipment at each of Billings’ public playgrounds.
