Patrick Stoltz

Patrick Stoltz has been with the Parks Department since January 2001, working as an analyst for the Revenue Unit in the Budget Office. Patrick assists in the management of the City Parks Foundation Custodial Accounts. In this capacity, Patrick plays a key role in helping to keep our recreation centers up and running and to keep the youth of this city happy and enriched by wonderful programs.

Patrick works closely with the Chiefs of Recreation, City Parks Foundation, as well as other units within the Budget Office to ensure the proper financial accounting of the Custodial Accounts. Patrick will continue to monitor the revenue from the recreation centers as Parks changes to a membership fee structure in July. He will assist in the training of recreation staff and in the reconciliation process with the Financial Management System.

Born and raised in Brooklyn, across the street from Prospect Park, Patrick feels the park has contributed greatly to his well being and that it is an honor to be working for the best agency in the city. In his spare time Patrick keeps himself busy spinning records at parties, and spending time in the outdoors. As an Ultimate Frisbee player who competes on a national level, Patrick hopes to shed light on the sport of Ultimate through youth clinics at recreation centers in his hometown of Brooklyn.
