city of Kennewick poised to take over golf course if council OKs deal


UPDATE 4/21/2010: The city of Kennewick city council voted “NO” on this deal……..

At tonight’s (4/20/2010) city of Kennewick council meeting, discussion over terminating the lease of the Columbia Park golf course and taking over operation of the facility is on the table. The council will consider paying Gary Long Jr., $250,000 for the course and improvements, and another $78,525 for equipment and supplies he owns. The lease for the golf course has run for 35 years and Long feels like it’s time to move forward since the city would not allow him to make improvements that he felt would enhance the course and surrounding area.
