  6. Brewer moved to adopt the Consent Agenda; Von Drasek seconded and the motion passed unanimously by voice vote.
  7. Rosinia reported that there were about 185 golfers in December. He also noted that he has hired a new Chef and Food Manager, Leo Crotty, who has already handled parties and who is well qualified.
  8. As part of the New Business, Sweeney announced that he would be leaving the Board and that Von Drasek and Michalczyk will represent Countryside in the next year. He also noted that he had been informed that the park district had voted to appoint John Sheehan as its representative to the golf course board for the next year.

Rosinia then took the opportunity to state that Marty Sweeney has been a great asset to the golf course and the board. He has always been supportive and has gone above and beyond the call of duty for the course. Kevin Burke spoke next in agreement. He stated that Sweeney was a fixture of the course who has done a fantastic job.

Burke then went on to introduce John Sheehan. He stated that Sheehan has been with Cassidy Brothers Drywall and has a background in business and finances. He added that he thought we didn’t need another park district board member on the golf course board.

Sweeney then turned to the Election of Officers for 2012. After discussion, Brewer nominated Radulski to serve as board president; Von Drasek seconded and the motion passed by unanimous voice vote.

Michalczyk nominated Brewer to serve as board vice president; Von Drasek seconded and the motion passed by unanimous voice vote.

  1. Staff Reports. Davis spoke to the board about his request for capital budget items, including the acquisition of Electric Greens Roller ($12,270.) and three Walking Greens Mowers ($16,987.). Davis stated that he wanted to make the need known early in the process and felt that acquisition of all the items is critically important. Rosinia then mentioned that he plans to speak to the park district attorney about extending the nets at the driving range to ensure that this doesn’t in some way increase liability exposure. He added that the golf course clubhouse will soon need a new roof. Von Drasek will try to explore the possibility of finding discontinued product that would be at a cost savings.
  2. There were no Additional Items to discuss.
  3. Von Drasek moved to adjourn; Michalczyk seconded and the meeting adjourned at 7:35 p.m.
