Bob Newport, executive director of the Round Lake Area Park District, will receive a three-year contract extension. The verbal agreement between park commissioners and Newport, who joined the district about two years ago, includes a 2 percent salary increase per year. "I'm happy with what I'm doing and they felt the same way I think," he said. The rolling three-year deal is retroactive to this past November. Newport's base salary is $103,020. The district covers the Round Lake communities and Hainesville and has 61 active parks.
