"It sure would be nice for someone to investigate how our county taxes are paying for Cherokee Run Golf Course, especially while other things go unattended in the county. Could it be that a portion of the fees for individuals to golf at Cherokee Run is being underwritten by the county -- if so, this would be a waste of taxpayers dollars, just throwing money to the wind. Also, do we have a county golf course being given an unfair tax status that other businesses in the county are not afforded? Does anyone care to look into county business practices to see that our monies are being used in a way that would benefit the entire community instead of a few golfers?"
Editor's note: Cherokee Run is owned by the city of Conyers.
