More issues to consider on city golf course

Jan Girardot

Dear Editor, Following up on Melissa DeHaan’s recent letter re: the proposed golf course, I suggest we look at a list of issues on that subject.-The citizens of Glenwood already said “no” once.-The citizens are being denied a vote on an enormous increase in debt.-The U.S. Geologic Survey says the area is a prime target for a 100-year flood, but, hey, what do those guys know?-A humongous sinkhole has already developed next to Midland Avenue.-Golf courses use an enormous amount of water (a precious commodity in the West).-Golf courses contribute to pollution of our water resources (read “Colorado River”). -A fantastic “open to the public” 18-hole golf course will open next spring in New Castle.From here, it looks as though five of our City Council members are being “led down the garden path” by the city manager. … Wait a minute, here. . You don’t suppose there is any connection between the golf course and his impending retirement?Jan GirardotGlenwood Springs
