Letter: Let's inform taxpayers

To the Editor:

The Golden Quill winner's letter seems to be a lot of misinformation repeated (R-E, April 27-28).

I believe the Red Wing Municipal Golf Corp. offered some very reliable information, and Jeff McDowell wrote some things that seemed far from the facts.

Mississippi National Golf Links could well be operated without any kitchen or bar. Many municipal golf courses just have a pro-shop with soft drinks and sandwiches available.

Mr. McDowell's last paragraph mentioned proposals that "will cost taxpayers money for years to come." The committee proposes to put the course on a break-even basis, with little or no tax dollars.

Let's inform the taxpayers of Red Wing how much of their tax dollars are being used to subsidize the water park and the marina.
