Mass muni gets only one bid

In recent months, nearly two dozen firms have expressed an interest in managing the municipal golf course in Lynn, Massachusetts. Much to the city’s surprise, however, only one actually submitted a bid.

A firm led by Stephen Murphy, the superintendent of Gannon Municipal Golf Course, has made what amounts to a take-it-or-leave-it offer: He’s willing to pay the city $2.1 million for a five-year lease.

If his offer isn’t accepted, according to the Daily Item, next year the 18-hole, Wayne Stiles-designed golf course will be operated by Lynn’ s public works department.
