Still in Debt

The Carbondale Park Board will meet this Thursday evening to try to figure out how to cover an expected $100,000 debt in this year's budget. The proposal at the Feb 27th to cover the shortfall by eliminating the positions of Assistant Golf Pro and Superintendent of Childcare was met with strenuous objection by several golfers and parents, including former Park Board President Michael Heck, who, according to the Carbondale Times (available in a finer newspaper rack near you), suggested cutting all district staff salaries by 2%, eliminating the contingency fund or getting rid of the bookkeeper. This Thursday's meeting will go through the budget line by line to see if any potential costs can be cut to meet the $100,000 shortage.


How about closing a money pit golf course...
The golf course breaks even.
