Adjournment: City of McCall Golf Course Committe McCall, Idaho 83638 Dear Sirs: I had written a letter to you in Sept., 1999 after the golf season was over requesting the refund of my season golf pass, cart trail fees, along with my wife, Janet's golf pass also. I had back surgery in June of 1999, and was unable to play golf for the year. My wife injured her achilles tendon, and didn't use her golf pass either. I was told in February of 2000 that I may need another back surgery this year, too. The city refunded the money for my golf pass, and Carl Hoss refunded the tournament fees I didn't play in also. I have since requested the refund of the trail cart fee, and Janet's season pass. We have been told different things, every time my wife goes over to City Hall to inquire. I think 6 months is a little extreme in finalizing the refund to us. I have written a letter to Carl, and he informed me that the Golf Committee must act on the refund. Four years ago, when I herniated two discs in my back, and missed the whole golf season, the City, and Carl refunded all fees to me within a month's time. We are not interested in a credit applied to this year, because my wife is wearing an orthopedic shoe, and is not going to play golf this year. I may need another back surgery, and could possibly miss another year of golf. I would kindly appreciate your immediate reponse to the refund of the unused fees for Janets' golf pass, and the cart trail fee, that was unused also. Everytime Janet goes over to inquire, she gets the "run around". This matter should have been resolved many month's ago. I don't understand the delay? How many times do you have to meet? Please reply! Sincerely, Gary G. Simmons P.O. Box 602 McCall, Idaho 83638 Janet Simmons P.O. Box 1921. 36 L.

Park Street McCJsll,11.) 83638 Re: Golf Course Passes Dear Cathleen: The issue has arisen as to Me. City's ability to grant extensions of she golf mom season passes or commit the City to refund such fees for a future season. Without addressing any particular situation, in general cities may not make decisions that commit the city to an expenditure or liability beyond the present fiscal year. This prohibition stems from the Idaho Constitution and contains very few exceptions, none of which would apparently reach golf course season passes. Consequently, we advise considering such issues within each applicable fiscal year. AS always, if you have any questions or problems, please contact me. DilB/mc cc: Dais Piilard, golf course manager Sincerely, MOORE SMITH BUX'I'oN & TURCKE, CHARitxEu David H. Bieter City of McCall s Golf Committee JAN 2 8 2000 McCall, Idaho 83638 Dear Sir: I had previously written a letter to the City, requesting the refunding of my Golf Fees for the past season due to back surgery in June. The City refunded my season pass fees, and Carl Hoss refunded the tournament entry fees to me. I was told that Carl would refund the Cart Trail fees to me also. I was in McCall this last week, and spoke to Carl personally. He informed me that the City would have to refund the Trail Fees for the Cart. I am now asking that the City refund the Cart Trail Fees to me. I guess there was a misunderstanding by both me and the City concerning this matter. Your prompt response would be appreciated. Send fees to Gary Simmons, POBox 602 McCall, California, 83638. Sincerely, Gary G. Summons City of McCall: May 27, 2000 I am writing this follow-up letter to inform you I am having A spinal fusion back operation on May 31st in Boise. I will not be playing Golf this year. In October I wrote a letter to you requesting a refund of the Unused fees for my annual golf pass. I also requested a refund of my Wife Janet's' annual golf fee, along with the Cart trail fee. My wife Injured her Achilles tendon. She didn't use her golf pass at all. I did receive my refund in November, but didn't receive hers' or the Trail fee. I don't understand why you could refund one, but not the Other? If it is now the City's policy not to refund unused fees, then I feel it is only right to credit me one annual golf pass and a cart trail Fee for the 2001 season, when I will again hopefully be playing again. This is my third and last letter. I would like a response in writing If possible. If I get no response, I will pursue other avenues to get results. Your immediate response would be greatly appreciated. Sincerely, Gary Glenn Simmons POBox 602 McCall, Idaho
