Council hears report from golf course

Seneca City Hall

(KMZA)--The Seneca City Council heard the annual report from the Spring Creek Golf Course when they meet last week.

Course Superintendent Tony Altenhofen reported that expenses exceeded income by almost $76,000 last year as a number of improvements were completed. The course saw income of $897,428, with expenditures of $922,403.

Altenhofen said the club continues to put everything they make back into the course. He said one-third of the cart paths were resurfaced last year and a bathroom was added near hole # 5, replacing a portable facility. In addition, excavator work and a retaining wall were also completed.

Altenhofen said they would like to resurface the parking lot this year. He said the golf course would buy the materials, and requested that the city provide the labor.

He said he thinks memberships will continue to grow, attribute in part to the successful men's women's and senior's leagues.

In other business, City Superintendent Brian Ruske provided an update on ongoing work at the North City Park.

He said city crews would be removing the shuffleboard and horseshoe pits at the park to make more green space for kids to play.

Ruske said price quotes are being obtained to replace trees that were removed during work to install concrete sidewalks and parking.

The Council voted 4-1 to replace the sidewalk on the east side of the park at an estimated cost of nearly $12,000. Council member Jim Mitchell cast the lone dissenting vote.

And City Administrator Steve Brooks reported that the equipment for the new fitness court is scheduled to be installed May 6th. A concrete pad is already poured at the Skoch Park site.
