    The reason there is no money in the 2011 budget for the golf course is that it was expected to be sold.

  2. Thus meaning the expenditures are optional.

    No, absent if the city no longer owns the golf course.

    The 2011 budget is not really the point. The city has used the public rationale that the City spends about $200K annually on the golf course and that is really the only rationale the city has used. The point is that the city has never spent $200K annually on the course nor did it intend to do so. The part of the budget that is optional are the CIP’s (Capital Improvement Projects).

    True, there is no budget for MNGL in 2011 because the city did expect to sell this—with no public input or say. They would have sold this with no opposition on bum reasoning had it not been for all of our work. It still may happen but it is wrong on so many levels. This is merely an attempt to take the discussion to the real reason for the sale and to share with the public the extreme loss that the city was bent on giving the taxpayers on their asset.
