Attachment # 1 McCall Golf Course Advisory Coma ttee's local option tax request for funding application dated June 8, 2005. The 27 hole McCall Golf Course continues to be one of the main drawing facilities for families visiting and retiring in the McCall area. The condition of the Golf Course is improving daily and with the help of 2005 Local Option Tax Funds for additional to hire additional labor and buy much needed equipment, this trend should continue through the season. This will only enhance the McCall Golf Courses ability to bring in more visitors, thus helping grow the entire economy of McCall. Jerry Palmerton, Golf Course Superintendent, has budgeted for 13 seasonal maintenance workers, which is 2 less than the 5 per nine hole minimum it takes to maintain a golf course in good shape and far less than the 18 which is normal for the standard 18 hole golf course. This should give Jerry the ability to continue the programs he has started this year and help insure the playability of the Golf Course as a whole and especially the greens. This request is based on two seasonal maintenance personnel working 160 hours each for the months of June, July, August and September. This would equate to 1280 hours at a loaded labor rate of $10.63 (current Salary Schedule Grade 2 minimum plus 3%) or $13,60640. We have rounded down the request to $13,600. Thank you for your consideration, he l lcCall Golf Course Advisory Committee
