(Answer to my suggestion that we give the golf course workers a bonus for a job well done this summer).

Thanks for your compliments on the courses!

We have subsidized golf, and will continue to do so.  Between 2007 and 2010 the subsidy ranged from $1,264,000 to $1,529,000.  For the 2013 to 2015 timeframe, we expect to catch up on some needed maintenance/renovation work and the subsidies will reach $2,353,000 in 2014.

As far as the bonuses for golf course workers, I wish we could do that.  However, I might say that workers in all departments of the POA go above and beyond the call of duty on a regular basis to ensure we have all the services needed for property owners.  Separating the golf workers from all others might not seem fair.  

After two years of no raises for POA employees in 2010 and 2011, we allowed an average increase of 5% for 2012, and are reviewing plans for a 2% cost of living increase next year.  We have had some criticism of those actions, so you know.  Also, the Board is certainly not saving the money for raises for itself...

Thanks for your email.
