That is the question council member Jay McChord is asking. Kentucky.com is reporting that at a recent city council work session, McChord was asking difficult questions about whether it is not only feasible for the city to fund public courses at the tune of $3.2 million each year but also if that is the role of government:
We have to make some hard decisions. Government can’t be all things to all people.
Very true. In its effort to be all things to all people, the government could end up being nothing at all.
It is no secret that Lexington has been in a bit of a budget crunch. It is time that questions about the role of government in golf should be addressed.
Why can’t these courses be privately run?
