Kurt Kragthorpe addressed on July 24 his views on closing a few Salt Lake City golf courses. Other than reducing the number of holes at Rose Park, no solutions to the cost of maintaining open space and golf courses within the city were offered. Here are some solid, economically viable solutions and no golf courses or parks would be closed:
1. Charge daily entry or use fees at all public parks, say $5 to enter Liberty Park and Sugar House Park.
2. Eliminate free parking at all city parks and at all city golf courses by putting in those lovely (moneymaking) blue parking meters.
