City Council agrees to work with golf group

The Red Wing City Council voted 6-1 Monday to move forward in working with Red Wing Municipal Golf Corporation to run Mississippi National Golf Links.

The details of the contract still will be worked out and a final agreement will come before the council for a vote at a future meeting.

The vote came during a special meeting Monday night at the public library. Council member Peggy Rehder voted no.

RWMGC, a local nonprofit, was the only respondent to the city’s request for proposals for MNGL earlier this fall. The city’s ad hoc golf course committee and representatives from the group have been meeting to discuss the proposal and answer questions before the council made a decision on the plan.
