Louis Levasseur, Jean Langevin, Fred Skawronski, Goerge Parrot and Jerrid Pasitney with the St. Paul Golf Club were admitted to the Council Room at 11:00 a.m. to give an overview of who they are, what they've done in the past and changes they are proposing.
They operate as a non profit organization run by a volunteer board and expanded to an 18 hole golf course approximatley 10 years ago. At that time their revenue increased by 1.4% but their expenses doubled. They also operate the pro-shop and the restaurant to increase their revenues.
They then advised Council that they are applying for a CFEP grant of $62,226 to repair their irrigation system and are seeking assistance from both the Town and the County. The Town of St. Paul has agreed to a $20,000 grant and will also provide some inkind work. They have also applied for a federal Labour grant of $20,000.
Mr. Pasitney then requested a yearly cash contribution of $50,000 from the County and advised that they will be putting the same request forward to the Town of St. Paul. He also requested a letter of support to accompany their CFEP grant application.
Following their presentation, the delegation left the Council Room at 11:42 a.m.
