He said the funds should pay the facilitys bills up through March and then he hopes the county will be refunded by the course near the end of the end of the year. Despite the allocation of funds the commissioners were adamant that the courses management agency, Billy Casper Golf, is doing a good job and the courses financial situation is improving. The players, as well as the people that utilize that golf course for things other than golf, will see a transformation in that golf course this year, said Commissioner Tony Mussare. It is going to look totally different. Renovations to the irrigation system and the course bunkers have been underway for the past year and Mussare said this will be the year that it really kicks off. During the off season Billy Casper has laid off some staff in an effort to cut costs as well, according to the commissioners. All three of us are monitoring very closely what happens at the golf course, said Commissioner Rick Mirabito, stressing they are not simply throwing money at the problem. In other business, the commissioners approved a $50,000 2017 County Fund Certification for Agricultural Land Preservation, with $25,000 coming from the county and the rest coming from land fees. The certification will help sustain farms throughout the area and add to the economy, according to Mark Davidson, conservation district manager. Agriculture is an important piece of the economy in this county, Davidson said. I think its important that we help sustain that component. Additionally, the commissioners approved a $35,000 grant to the Community Alliance for Progressive Positive Action, an early prevention program for youth.

Certainly, research and development in medical devices and treatments is the foundation of medical advancement. But success has been less definitive in applying enterprise IT services, including electronic medical records, to the operations in hospitals and doctors offices. Maybe mobile will make the difference.
