Counterpoint: Rogo responds to Golf Carts and Golf Budgets

In a previous exchange, I told Rogo that I would post whatever he provided in terms of writeup and documentation as a way to get facts out on the golf course. Here is what Rogo provided me. (Note to readers: I am posting exactly what was provided to me with none of my own edits or commentary per my agreement with Rogo with one exception: I masked out his private email address for privacy reasons):

I really not bullshitting but it does get agravating. Here are the numbers from city budget,please note in 12/13 hospital ins (acct8850)62K was taken out for 1 person hospital ins. (corrected in later yrs to appox 11-12K)In 11/12 same thing 79K also bs admin fee to city of 50K.In 10/11 same but 95K.09/10 actually bad year but that was with full time city workers there with full benefits. This was changed by a real golf commission to put seasinal employees there to cut costs. years prior not really that bad. Also look how far budget numbers and actual numbers are off What do you think??

Carts hard to explain. But i’ll start at beginning. Gerry decusatis thought part rental was 20 per person, whil in actuality pro rented 20 per cart (10 perperson)If you look at city budget they originally put in 165000 and adjusted to 127856 in 14/15. in 15/16 more accurate number 58405, guess from actual numbers last year. Expenses for carts
cart lease   28000
The pro was compensated in new contract appox 20000 per year in new contract
Also city agreed to pay some of his payroll as part of compensation. summer help went up about 15000 plus unemployment fo them must be added in. Also gas and maint. of carts must be added on. This will add up to alot more than 58405. This was all caused by thane administration thinking the pro was making a ton off money off carts. Hope this helps. This is getting crazy.
