Clarkson to install disc golf course 1

The Clarkson City Commission meets in regular session on Monday.

The city of Clarkson will install a disc golf course in its city park in the near future.

Clarkson City Commissioner Michael Anderson said during Monday’s regular commission meeting that a recent event to support the installation of a disc golf course in the Clarkson city park had raised over $6,000 and was attended by over 40 people.

The total cost of installing a disc golf course in the city park was determined to be $10,377.66, and, with a total of $6,618 in funding raised for the course, Anderson made a motion to contribute the remaining $3,759.66 from the Clarkson Parks fund to finish the project.

“I think it’s a great thing for our park,” said Anderson.

Clarkson Mayor Bonnie Henderson expressed her support for the project, noting that disc golf is a popular sport that can be played year-around.

Concluding the discussion, the city commission voted in favor of Anderson’s motion to provide the remaining funding needed to construct a disc golf course in the city park.

In other business, the city commission:

  • Passed a motion to authorize Henderson and/or City Clerk/Treasurer Scotty Gore to negotiate a settlement and payment plan on utilities accounts that are over three months past due once per customer.
  • Was informed that the city of Clarkson’s Christmas tree lighting ceremony will be held on Friday, Dec. 3 at 6 p.m.
  • Was informed that Clarkson will host its next blood drive on Monday, Dec. 20 from 3-8 p.m. at the Clarkson Community Center.

Passed a motion to have the City of Clarkson Christmas party catered and for the city to purchase $10 gifts for all attendees.
