Peoria Park District weighing private management of golf courses

Posted: Updated:
PEORIA, Ill. (WEEK) -- -

The Peoria Park District is holding a public meeting to get input on a proposal to privatize the management of the district's three golf courses. 

A committee formed this summer recommended GolfVisions Management, Inc. of Northlake, Ill. for a three-year management contract. Under the contract, the park district is responsible for funding shortfalls or receiving any surpluses. 

GolfVisions would manage the maintenance, operations, food and beverages and improvements of the golf facilities. The company said it typically fills positions from existing staff. 

The meeting is set for August 23 at 6 p.m. in the auditorium of the Noble Center for Park District Administration.
