Frankfort’s golf course may be under new management before the year is over. The city’s Board of Public Works is seeking proposals to manage the Frankfort Commons property.

Oliphant Management currently operates the course. Mayor Chris McBarnes says the search for new offers is merely a desire to see what else might be available.

“It’s definitely not a reflection on the job currently being produced by our management firm,” he says.

McBarnes says the decision is an opportunity to keep the contract competitive.

Also on today’s show: Like Frankfort, Crawfordsville is struggling with a golf course that regularly loses money.
