I would like to take a moment to clarify a few things regarding the two city owned golf courses. First of all, I have done some research and found that both golf courses are self supporting and don't use tax dollars for their operation. They keep their fees as low as possible to offer affordable golf to the residents of this city.
I have also discovered that they contribute $100,000 to the city's general fund every year, and that goes back to when Jerry Mitchell was head of Parks and Recreation. It makes me wonder why he didn't explain that to the rest of the council.
I also did some research and found that the Champions Club Tennis Center loses more than $200,000 per year of taxpayers' money and yet nobody is questioning why the city is in the tennis business. I wonder whose district the Champions Club is in?
The council needs to stop focusing on the only thing the city has that actually generates money and doesn't use tax dollars and start looking at what the taxpayers' money is really getting wasted on.
