WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- The Wilmington City Council found out Tuesday night that repairing the Municipal Golf Course will cost much more than estimated.
It was supposed to be a $700,000 project. But, the city's spokeswoman, Melissa Talbert, said it will now most likely cost more than $1 million to restore the greens and bunkers, plus do drainage and irrigation improvements because crews must make more repairs than originally thought.
Talbert said at the council's next meeting on Feb. 4, members will look at a plan and budget that will show how the overhaul can be done all at once. She added that user fees not taxpayer dollars fund the course.
