Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor:

I have lived in Watonga most of my life and have seen lots of changes. The city is doing a good job cleaning up the town,

I keep hearing rumors that some on the city council and the mayor want to do away with the golf course. Their reasoning is that it does not make any money and costs too much to operate. My question is- what other departments make money? The Huff Lorang Park, American legion Park, the airport, parks dept. etc. I thought the city is to provide recreation for it’s citizens. Also, all of the above are calling cards for people who might consider moving here. As I see it now, we are dying on the vine and cutting out forms of recreation is not the way to go. I just want to see our town grow. If you have any questions about any of this, please contact the mayor or your city council person.
