ROCHELLE Plans for the City of Rochelle and Flagg-Rochelle Community Park District to purchase the golf course property and lease operations to the Greater Rochelle Economic Development Corporation are still in the works, but a final vote on the issue has been pushed back due to some proposed changes in the contract agreement.

The parties were set to meet last Wednesday night to presumably approve the purchase of the 74-acre facility, including the golf course, banquet and dining facilities, as well as all buildings and equipment on the property. However, the meeting was postponed after GREDCO officials reportedly offered a new draft of the lease agreement on Monday, which included some revisions that park district and city officials wanted more time to review.

GREDCO treasurer Dale Meyers explained that the proposal handed out at the first joint meeting two weeks ago was just the first draft and since then some contract details have to be ironed out so all parties are satisfied.
