Worthington City Council work session discusses Prairie View

WORTHINGTON – The Worthington City Council met Friday morning for a work session to discuss the future of the Prairie View Golf Links, something Mayor Mike Kuhle said he thought would be helpful prior to Monday’s council meeting.

Kuhle said his plan was to keep the course open for this year at the 2014 rates and appoint a long-term committee consisting of council members Diane Graber and Mike Harmon and some members of the community including some who do not golf to study the situation. Kuhle mentioned several names, including Amy Ernst, Scott Rall and Bob Demuth Sr.
