In FY 02 the City received $146,000 in revenue. The city will look at lowering the contract amounts based on the FY 02 figures. The city lost money plus paid bonuses. When the revenue threshold is under $175,000 there is no reward for the city. · Would like to see the Golf Professional recommend the fee structure to the Golf Course Advisory Committee. This due to his operation being tied into profits and day to day control. · Recommended a local rate instead of a resident rate because of the issue of city limits and taxes. · Requested the committee to sponsor a new pro welcome party. Old Business: Roger Snodgrass would like to see the development of tools needed to market the golf course.
