County to run golf course?


For The Jefferson Herald

Greene County conservation director Dan Towers told the county board of supervisors Monday morning that Lakeside Golf Course leaders have inquired about the possibility of giving the golf course to the county conservation department to operate alongside Spring Lake.

The board took no action on the proposal Monday.

Towers also reported that the conservation board has hired Joe Allen as Spring Lake park ranger effective Nov. 3.

The supervisors hired Linnette Sondgeroth as a temporary part-time custodian at a wage of $16 per hour.

The board approved the transfer of $569,075 from the county’s rural fund to its secondary road fund. It was the first half of fiscal 2019’s rural funding.

Board chairman John Muir reported that he and board member Pete Bardole had visited with Greene County Medical Center personnel about the possibility of a 28E joint agreement between the county and the medical center through which both entities would contribute to an emergency services provider to continue ambulance service in the county.

They also recommended talking with the municipalities in the county to see if they would be willing to contribute to the ambulance service on a per capita population basis.
