MAYOR'S RECOMMENDATIONS Avalon South



Published: Tue, February 12, 2002 @ 12:00 a.m.



Mayor Hank Angelo has made these suggestions to city council to make changes at the troubled Avalon South Golf Course:

Pay off the $345,000 remaining on Tony Joy's $425,000 loan he got in 1995 to make improvements at Avalon South. City officials have said a lower municipal interest rate will be available to the city once it takes out the internal note, slashing Joy's 7.25 percent interest rate by 2 percent to 3 percent. Angelo stressed money used to front the note will be paid back from revenues generated at the course.

Authorize the city to advertise for bids and enter into a contract for the lease or purchase of equipment to run the golf course, including grass mowers and carts.

Create a parks board to operate it as a public park and rename it "Avalon Golf Park." This will allow the law department to create a "public purpose" status that will make it tax-exempt, saving the city roughly $25,000 a year.

Approve a parks board budget, including salaries of park personnel and a recommended new position of bookkeeper, to be housed in the city auditor's office. There was no discussion on possible salary or duties for the position.
