The Iroquois Golf Course Board is going to be eliminated.
Formed when the municipality was operating the Iroquois Golf Course, the board consists of the members of South Dundas council.
South Dundas and Seaway Golf have a lease agreement, but that lease is with South Dundas, represented by the council, and not the board.
“The bills are being paid, and it the golf course is not costing the municipality any money,” said South Dundas chief administrative officer Steve McDonald. “The board has served its purpose. There is no longer a need for the board.”
“I don’t think we’re going back in to the golfing business,” said South Dundas mayor Steven Byvelds.
“Eliminating the board will just eliminate a layer of bureaucracy,” he added.
Staff was directed by council to bring a resolution to dissolve the board to council at their next meeting.
Following the elimination of that board, any issues regarding the lease agreement will go directly to council.
