Indianapolis LP councilman seeks to get city out budget rough by selling off government golf courses
Posted on Aug 13, 2009
Ed Coleman, Libertarian member of the City-County Council in Indianapolis, sought support today for a proposal to cut unneeded spending as many taxpayers struggle to make ends meet. Coleman proposed the city sell off 12 of its government-owned golf courses.
"Most of our golf courses currently aren't making money, and the ones that are aren't making much," Coleman told Indianapolis' Channel 6 News. "In economic times like these, we should look into whether we should be in the golf business or not."
Coleman's proposal was tabled indefinitely.
