The Fort Worth City Council on Tuesday will consider shifting the rents paid by a Putt-Putt mini golf complex on Z Boaz park property to help pay for future improvements at the park.
The Putt-Putt has operated since 1990 on part of the park property that was the city-owned Z Boaz Golf Course until last September, when the city closed the golf course and re-opened it as a park. Putt-Putt lease revenue, $45,000 for the current fiscal year, has been used as general revenue in the city's golf enterprise fund.
The city is trying to squeeze parks projects into the upcoming 2014 bond package, but funding for improvements at Z Boaz may on the outside looking in. Here's a full list of unfunded parks projects on Fort Worth's five-year wish list. Here's what's in the Z Boaz park master plan.
