Salton City golf course doing what it can to stay in business in dry times
By the world-class standards of the famous golf courses in the Coachella Valley, the West Shores Golf Park near the shores of the Salton Sea barely qualifies as a course at all.

Although this golf course is not the best or most popular around, it does have the atmosphere needed for the people her. The people who run the place have done an outstanding job of keeping it green, dispite the high cost of water, and neat. With all the other projects here being elimated by gov't officials, this is one project that should remain. The community here needs this golf course. Keep up the exellent work, Howard...you are doing something right...!

Unfortunately the SCSD Board of Directors had to make the decision to stop operating the Golf Park because of budget concerns.
The budget concerns were the result of the district refusing to charge users of the sewer system an amount sufficient to cover the costs of running the sewer system. To make up for this monetary shortfall the district (with the approval of the Board of Directors) then siphons the needed money from the General Fund.
The side effect of this is that the General Fund is thus deprived of money it could be using instead on Parks & Recreation, Street Lighting, and yes, Fire Protection.
Its one thing to say that the sewage system is more critical then Parks & Recreation or Street Lighting. But when you or a loved one has a medical emergency or your house is on fire, paying a sewer user fee that more accurately reflects what it actually costs to run the system wont seem too bad after all.
I can see it now Johnny, Johnny, your dad fell and is hurt real bad, go dial flush, swirl, swirl!
