This was a strange news story. No one has complained to the City about the terms and conditions of a six year old lease granting use of nine holes of golf to the Watertown Golf Club in Thompson Park.
The reporter called me insisting I comment on something no one has come to me or the Council to complain about, so I told him 'no comment.'
It's a 20 year lease and as long as the terms are met, that's the end of the story. Sometimes you have to be careful of straw-man news stories where they try to get you to comment on either a non existant controversy or on something someone at the news organization wanted to make into a controversy.
Been there done that.
