Under the agreement, the Yahara Golf Course is authorized to operate 36 holes of golf through 2024, 27 holes of golf through 2025, and 18 holes of golf through 2042.

The proposed resolution also approves a new solid waste agreement with the County for 2023 to 2032.

The agreement includes an annual cost escalator of no more than 1.75%, and the County must notify the City of the cost increase for the following year no later than June 30th.
