County OKs Black Rock course plan

April 09, 2007|by KATE S. ALEXANDER

The Washington County Commissioners approved a six-step management plan Tuesday for Black Rock Golf Course, which places the course under the Department of Buildings, Grounds and Parks.

Debra Murray, the county's budget and finance director, presented the plan to the commissioners Tuesday along with Black Rock's 2008 fiscal year budget.

Murray said the first step of the plan is to "restore the cash balance" of the course, which board of directors president Dick Roulette said is funded primarily by greens and cart fees.

"The course does not receive general fund contributions and we would like to keep it that way," Murray said.

The plan also temporarily removes the 25 percent cash reserve requirement, forgives the balance of a $235,000 inter-fund equipment loan and releases restrictions on the John Howard Trust allowing the county to use it for capital improvement to parks, recreation or golf courses.

Commissioners amended the plan's final step to require a report from Building, Grounds and Parks director Jim Sterling in six months.
