I have dealt with the WC Superintendent and he is very good about making promises and being very nice when your in front of him.
When you are not in front of him he could care less what he has promised. So yes I believe that what the Mayor says is true. Kemp could care less how he treats people in WC he has no ties here except for a paycheck. He has applied for jobs elsewhere since he was hired here, they are smart enough not to hire him.

Hometown, Your so negative. First it's not the Country Club anymore. It the PMG&RC. And it's worth at least 2 1/2 to 3 times what the city paid for it , get that thru your thick skull. It could make the City money, not loose it. You just don't like the fact that they bought it , but you need to own up to the fact that it is the most valuable piece of property in Webster Co., and the City got it for pennies on the dollar. Like it or not, it was a brillant purchase. Donald Trump would have loved to have stumbled into this buy. Also, I have to ask everyone of you this, what does it matter if it doesn't quite pay for itself ? Does Westerfield Park, and all it has to offer bring in any money ? Does your police dept., bring in any money ? Does your fire dept., bring in any money ? Does your ambulance service bring in enough to cover itself ? Does the most beautiful place in Webster Co., the city lake picnic area bring in any money ? Does your airport bring in any money ? You have to either answer no or not really, and if you did , you just have a pet pive with the city buying it in the first place. Now, at least give it a chance, and quit your fussin ! Or start demanding we give up some of the other stuff that don't quiet cover itself either.

If the former Providence Whore House & Golf Club is worth two and a half to three times what the city paid for it then go to the bank and see about the possibility of acquiring a loan to buy the place. Then tell them you think it is worth the two and a half to three times what the city paid for it and thats how much money you need and then watch the loan officers laugh in your face.
I demand we give up the providence 911 service because its a un-necessary waste of money and i also demand that we give up the police department and have Frankie Springfield come in and open a office and supply a couple of deputies for the providence area.

OK smarty pants. First of all, services such as fire dept, ambulance and police dept are not meant to make money. That is just down right stupid. However, I can guarantee you when your old butt falls down with a heart attack and we no longer have an ambulance service but are dependant on Dixon to get someone here to pick you up and you meet your maker, it may not matter to you anymore that the beautiful golf course is worth 10 times what the city paid for it! The truth is, once our services are gone because they have held on to that money sucking golf course out there too long, they are gone for good. There wont be one thing anybody in this community can do about that! I'm not negative, just stating facts. The city did not have an extra $300,000 dollars to buy that place whether they paid pennies on the dollar or not. Why cant YOU not understand THAT! Get a grip old man. You dont seem to have a good grip on reality concerning certain things. There have been several on here trying to explain several topics to you and everyone else is wrong and negative. The country club should have been sold to a private buyer period. When you dont have money to pay for something or money to make payments on a loan, you shouldn't make that obligation. The country club is not a money making venture. It does not make money, if that were true it would have run itself and wouldnt have been thousands of dollars in debt! Now it is even more expensive to run than before because we have more employees out there to pay than they required before when they had a board to run it. I guess we will just have to watch it play out so that Mr Bill can see what everyone is trying to tell him.
