Budget Line Item Mike handed out an explanation sheet of the budget by line items and the actual budget itself. Mike then read through each line item explaining what was covered under the budgeted figures. Mike said, his only concern was the fertilizer budget at $15,000 he felt this could be low by $5,000 to $10,000. There was the concern again of how the golf fund was going to pay for the increased water rates. Mike said, that he was in the process of looking for some costs for drilling wells to fill our irrigation ponds. He also mentioned that the City didn't have a problem with the pursuit of wells being installed. The Committee thanked Mike for the review of the budget. Old Business: City Council Response to Parks Removal from Golf Superintendent Max informed the Committee that at this time the Parks would still be under Mikes' supervision. Max told the Committee about Dean Martens five page letter for keeping the Parks under Mikes' supervision and that he also felt the Parks had looked the best they had in several years. There was no vote on this issue by City Council. Staff Report: Mike Combs- Mike told the Committee about his meeting with the new Council members and Ms. Arp. Mike said, that they talked about the water issue and were wondering where more money could be made at the golf course for the golf fund. Mike said, he told them about the possibility of making the two contract laborers City employees and then that way there could be more money available to the golf fund. Mike said, he felt like they were interested in doing some thing like that if it were possible but it would take some research. A committee member commented on this idea and leasing the operation to a third party. Max noted that because the current out standing bonds to be retired some of these options might not be available. Mike said, that the they were in the process of servicing the equipment and that approximately $4,000 of the budgeted figure had been spent but that we also had approximately 90% of all parts needed to fix the equipment.

There are seven parties through Jan. 1@$250 and the others @$100. * Max asked Mary about the projected revenues for the restaurant being $264,000 and if she knew where these figures came from.
