Supervisor Brian McGrath has been directed to obtain outside funds to redesign the Millcreek Municipal Golf Course. Please send or bring your donations to Brian. The goal is to raise $100,000.00.

Lube is cheaper here if you need some... Although with the impending truck stop off buffalo road the price will probably rise.

Airport destruction of 4 holes. You must donate funds to reconfigure the layout.

Millcreek wants to fix a golf course ruined by an unnecessary airport runway extension at an airport that didn't need a longer runway because no one of any importance cares to fly here in bigger planes to conduct business. The only growth in Erie is more miscalculated ways to waste money.

the runway needs to be longer to cover the crappy landing performance of the delta jet from detroit.....and their pilots are fresh outta flight school.

You'll change your mind once you run off the end of the runway and burn to death....just sayin'

McGrath must be stopped in his quest for power and misuse of tax dollars. I bet he golfs for free at Erie Golf Course and Millcreek, I have seen him there in the middle of the day many times.

100,000 for what ? To cover township employees and bull dozers...? Or to pay the operators 100,000 to do for $40,000 and bill the township $100,000.... At least get the range and practice greens back up for use.....

McGrath wants that range and practice green open by April so he can get his game in shape to golf Erie Golf Course for free. He has an unmarked township car he uses to sneak up there for free lunch and nine before he quits for the day.

Sue Weber said on the radio the other day "just look at campaign contributions".... They were speaking of Foust and why would county want to build hotel when Scott could privately. She then went out of her way to say thats why Mcgrath pushes golf course. The operators contribute back to his campaign. Not for anything, but cant he find millcreek business people to run erie golf course?

Who in the hell voted this bum in, the stupid democrats in Millcreek. This McGrath guy is a disgrace to the Millcreek community.

He actually has done a great job with both sites. But the revenue should stay in or with the township. If the operators now run it without a pro or assistant and let the operators wife title herself "director of golf" for $40 grand plus seasonal unemployment- then why cant some millcreek residents operate it ? I mean for the mere pennies im sure millcreek is gettin back from operators..??? Sure its a plush deal also

McGrath is paying off people who front the money for his elections with the golf course. Look at the waste of money for the huge clubhouse at the Millcreek course. These people helped squash the part time supervisor referendum and now he owes them again.

In an effort to reopen the course, I am soliciting grant funding and private funding to pay for the project. I am confident that the community recognizes the value of the Millcreek Golf and Learning Center and is willing to help again provide our residents, particularly children, with a wonderful recreational and educational facility.

BRIAN McGRATH is a Millcreek Township supervisor.

Yeah, save it so I can run my Monster Truck all over the damn place when I get there.

Too damn many golf courses in the USA & the WORLD as it is. Fertilizer runoff, backdoor deals (like this one?) taking place on 'em every day, dumbass elitists in ugly clothes- let it go back to hardwood forests, you wanna take a hike.
