County Approves Loan for Purchase of Golf Cart | News, Sports, Jobs
Lycoming County Commissioners voted 3-0 to approve the loan agreement for the purchase of golf carts for the White Deer Golf Resort.
The fleet of trolleys, intended to replace aging and worn out trolleys, will cost $ 41,525, a savings of over $ 60,000 over the initial cost.
The county loan is to be paid by the golf course at an interest rate of 2% over the next eight years, according to Commissioner Rick Mirabito.
The carts are expected to arrive later this month.
Commissioner Tony Mussare said the golf course was no longer a financial burden on the county.
“It was a total loss,” he said.
Mirabito said the golf course can now be seen as an asset to the region.
Jason Yorks, director of resource management services for Lycoming County, reported to commissioners that many people continue to put bad items in recycling bins.
“The abuse is unreal,” he said.
Cat litter and other disgusting types of debris or materials are being placed in the trash cans, he noted.
Yorks noted that people should not force plastics that are too large for the holes in plastic bins.
“Maybe we need to educate on what we can and cannot recycle”, Said Mirabito.
York said such efforts had been made.
Commissioner Scott Metzger said he had received phone calls regarding recycling issues.
“A few ruin for the majority”, he said.
