Foresight Golf has 24 months to develop the Max Mendel Memorial Municipal Golf Course, according to a caveat added to the consulting agreement Tuesday by the city’s Operations Committee.
Each month, the city will provide $7,500 in compensation for the development and maintenance of the course until it opens.
Councilman Landeck wants a timeframe adhered to, while Councilman Mike Garza thinks it's a bad time to invest in a golf course when budget cuts are expected to be made next year. Both Landeck and Garza are up for re-election this year.
