Public golf course on the chopping block as city faces financial crunch | Politics
NAPOLEON, OH (Toledo News Now) - The City of Napoleon has already cut is Parks and Recreation budget by thousands of dollars per year, but now some are saying it should close its public golf course to save more money.
“It does not generate enough revenue to cover its expenses,” said Parks and Recreation Director Tony Cotter.
Napoleon City Council will have the ultimate say in whether the course closes or remains open.
“I think they should close it to save money,” said Napoleon resident Jeanette Basinger.
“Other people from other towns come in and spend money in napoleon that wouldn't if the golf course weren't here,” said Chris Sauder.
No matter what council decides, the course has already been funded and will open in 2013. Any changes would take effect in 2014.
