Exactly mothball most people just can't seem to get this through their heads. After we pay to build and maintain a golf course for over 20 years lets give it away to someone.

The Chase family has a claim on this land if it is not maintained as a municipal 18 hole golf course. People should use their brains before just throwing this away. If this is not maintained, the city and the Chase family would be in a costly law suit. The haters seem to not care about this, but they need to think this through.

When the contract is paid off, what would the sale value be? Is the city doing an appraisal right now? Is there a performance clause with the management company? I see an out real easy. My guess would be cost of $13MM and a reasonably low salvage value of $5-6MM. lot of taxpayer money to throw away. Lots of profitable salvage options and no one is thinking about.
