Minutes: Jeff Goodman moved that the minutes of the meeting on June 7 be approved as presented. Ted Whiteman second. Motion carried. Chairman Whiteman opened the meeting by welcoming the new men's association representative Phil Gilman to the committee. Old Business: 1) Cart Storage Update Supt. Denham informed the committee that Mr. Wyman has constructed the building that was required by the terms of his lease with the city. He has yet to rent any of the spaces therefore the city has not received any proceeds. Committee asked that staff produce a written report for the next meeting. 2) New 9 Update - #7 drainage Supt. Denham reported that he had met with Pete O'neil to address the drainage problems on the seventh fairway. The result of the meeting was that his staff would perform the labor to install the pipe and rock. S.M.R. will cover the cost for material and labor. 3) Tee Sign Proposal The men's association did not reach an agreement with Mr. Johnson. They voted to pursue other options. Currently they are negotiating with three other sign makers to find the best solution. Jeff Goodman and Phil Gilman were asked to be a sub- committee to monitor the outcome of the negotiations. New Business: 1) Seat New Committee Member This subject was moved to the start of the meeting. 2) City Street Cart Travel Mr. Whiteman spoke of an incedent where he was stopped while driving through town in his golf cart. There are several other people that also store their carts at their homes. The committee agreed that the reason people need to store their carts at home is the lack of facilities at the golf course. Further discussion centered on whether golf carts are similar to snowmobiles on city streets. Committee agreed that they are very much alike, yet golf carts are not allowed on the streets. Mr. Whiteman will explore existing ordinances with the city attorney and report at the next meeting. Staff Reports: 1) Carl Hoss Carl spoke of the need to investigate construction of a practice chipping green area. He asked that Mr. Denham come up with a design for the area so the wetlands issues can be addressed. 2) Charles Denham Charles informed the committee that a letter from the ladies association had been sent to Mr. Shimun. The letter adressed some safety issues and some "cosmetic" issues. 90% of the items listed were addressed before Mr. Denham received the letter. As for the Hydroject issue, there is alot of speculation as to why the maintenence staff is not using the machine as regularly as some people expect them to. The superintendent says the weather has been too wet for this machine. The machine uses water injection to make the holes, so if the greens are too wet to begin with it makes no sense to inject more water into them. There is no "reluctance" to use the machine. With no further business the meeting adjourned at 8:40pm. Respe Ted Whiteman Chairman
