A special meeting of the Common Council was held in City Hall in the city of Amsterdam Tuesday evening to push through one resolution that needs immediate attention.

The meeting was just a few minutes in length, but the council members present -- First Ward Alderman Joseph Isabel, Third Ward Alderwoman Gina DeRossi, and Fifth Ward Alderman Richard Leggiero -- voted "yes" to a resolution to award a bid to fix the golf maintenance building.

According to the resolution, the project bid was awarded to A.J. Arpey, Inc. for the nearly $50,000 project.

After the meeting, DeRossi said the project was something that the city had bonded for.

"There are a lot of repairs that need to be done. The golf maintenance building is kind of falling apart," she said.

DeRossi said when the bids originally came back, they were a little higher than expected, so the city had to make up the difference.

"You can't transfer between bond funds anymore," she said. "So it was just approving spending of the money to just go forward with the project."

The push now, DeRossi said, is to get the project finished before the winter weather comes.

Frank Natale, chairman of the Golf Commission, said the maintenance building project was part of the capital expenses for the golf course.

This year was the year for golf course projects, as the cart path project, one that was two to three years in the making, Natale said, was also completed.

He said in past years, the number of significant improvements has not been as substantial.

Until the next commission meeting, Natale said the commission will be doing some studies about the best way to bring in and keep members.

Those spreadsheet studies, he said, will include research on the regular pay a flat fee and have unlimited access to the course, and adding a "pay as you go" option.

Though the numbers aren't technically due until February, Natale said he hopes to have the golf rates set by next month.
