WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Wilmington City Council is still trying to figure out the best way to completely pay for renovations to the city's municipal golf course.
Amy Beatty, Superintendent of Recreation and Downtown Services for the City of Wilmington, presented the latest cost estimations to city council on Monday.
According to city documents presented by Beatty, the project is slated to cost $1,015,619, and an estimated $700 thousand is needed to offset revenue lost during construction. The documents state that the project is currently facing a $373,021 shortfall.
Beatty's documents state that loans or grants from the city general fund or park bond could help pay for the shortfall. She said the topic will be discussed to the public at the next city council meeting.
"This is a big project and we're talking about big dollar amounts so we want to make sure the public is aware of what we're doing and is a participant in the process. Because of that, we are going to be providing the same presentation to city council tomorrow evening," said Beatty.
The city council meeting will be held at Wilmington City Hall at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday.
