Disc golf is popular right now, and county commissioners will discuss building a course in Beverly Hills for fans of the sport on Tuesday.
The county has two existing courses: one in Floral City and Crystal River.
This proposed course would meet the needs of an underserved population in the area, according to Director of Community Services, Mariselle Rodriguez.
Rodriguez said in the agenda item that he would be available to host weekly or monthly tournaments and events.
The course would be led by disc golf pro Mike Barnette, owner/operator of Sun King Disc. He will ask the council to partner with his company and volunteers to build a new 18-hole disc golf course at Central Ridge District Park.
Retired boat captain Michael Tracy donates the 18 golf baskets valued at $7,200.00. Citrus County Parks and Recreation staff and volunteers would work together to provide the labor and equipment needed to clear the course. The county would also provide the materials needed to build tee areas and signage.
The county commission meeting will begin at 1 p.m. Tuesday at the Citrus County Courthouse, 110 N. Apopka Ave., Inverness. Commissioners will hold a workshop at 8:30 a.m. at the same location to discuss infrastructure and growth.
Also on the agenda, the Commissioners:
– Get the latest Citrus County Detention Center Staffing Report. The council is demanding monthly reports from CoreCivic after hearing concerns about whether the county’s private jail and jail are adequately staffed. This will be the first such report.
– Discuss the search for a new county administrator and what they want to see in the applicants’ RFPs.
– Discuss the development of the 2022-23 budget.
