Outside manager for city golf courses?

City Councilman Lionel Rivera resurrected a proposal he submitted two years ago calling for an outside manager to oversee the two city-owned golf courses. Initially, the proposal did not progress through the decision process. In his new proposal, he suggests the outside management will allow for better service to the public and a better value for the cost. The city will analyze the possibility in a study which also examines the feasibility of hiring outside managers for a variety of city functions. The report should be complete in May.
