In his blog, Mark O’Brien notes that the Osceola Golf Course is receiving dwindling support from the Pensacola City Council. O’Brien writes, “In the past, Ron Townsend and Mike Wiggins…had stood up for the city course. But they sat silent, as did other members present” at Monday’s budget meeting.
Is the city thinking about ridding itself of the golf course?
It could be possible. Since Florida voters passed Amendment 1 in January, city government has been forced to cut unneeded expenses from their budget. In the next two years, the city will spend nearly $300,000 to run a golf course that isn’t even within the city limits. Also, people aren’t using it as much as they did in the past.
What do you think? Should the city sell the Osceola Golf Course?
