Park Board Commissioners don't vote on measure

The Quincy Park District won't be offering video gaming at Westview Golf Course after all.

That's after the Park Board didn't vote Wednesday night on a measure to approve installing two machines at Westview's Pro Shop. After lengthy debate, no Board member would make a motion to bring the issue up for a vote, which caused its' defeat. The measure was recommended for approval by Park District staff, and according to Park Board President Bob Gough, would have brought in up to $50,000 in revenue to Westview. Gough also compared the machines to selling alcohol, which is allowed at the 27-hole course. However, some commissioners, led by Jeff Steinkamp, felt it went against the District's mission statement.

Director of Golf David Morgan said he hoped to generate additional revenue for the golf course to avoid raising costs. Westview is currently running a $100,000 surplus.
