BY COUNCILOR STAUBER:
The city council finds:
(a) Two city parks each contain a golf course;
(b) The golf courses are operated by the city for use by the public, for a fee, as part of the public purpose of providing recreational opportunities and open space within the city;
(c) Considerable expense is generated by golf course operations, which expense is a component of the city budget; and
(d) It is in the best interests of the city that the council and the administration be well informed about costs and options for operating the golf courses.
THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the city council requests that the administration report, within 30 days, to the city council on how the golf course management and operations are structured and what reasonable alternative methods are available, and the costs thereof.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE: This resolution supports administration’s efforts to research alternative structures for management and operation of the municipal golf courses.
