A local group is challenging the City’s sale of Mississippi National Golf Course. They argue that 1.) the City needs legislative approval to sell the property, and 2.) that the property could only be sold by Initiative or Referendum, not by ordinance or resolution. They also challenge the sale on the basis of a lack of a bidding process or advertising the sale. Is the City walking into another lawsuit, or will it have to take a mulligan and start the process anew? This is up for discussion at Monday’s Council meeting.
