nine years we have done an incredible amount of work to restore specifically the greens which have been the prized asset at glean eagles. pull public golf courses are a little bit scuffy. the pictures were taken at probably the lowest point in nine years nine months when the lease was on a month to month situation, when the water was increased 40% by order of the puc for specific reasons related to the drought, and it's very difficult as an operator to know how much you should invest when the certainty of your business is in question so i ask to you look at the pictures but with a grain of salt. if you go out today because we have certainty we're moving forward as partners you will see a tremendous a lot much of grass growing in all areas. we have some areas we turned off the water because we want to be
responsible in the third year of the drought. there are areas that we literally turned off the water and specifically off the tee boxes and 150-yards where the balls should not be. we turned off the water and that's the pictures you're looking at. it's a responsible decision we made because we're under a lot of pressure with regards to holding on to our precious resource. the work we did together over the last nine months to negotiate a lease has been tremendous. the aid that the department is willing to give to the golf course will help it make a more sustainable model. it will help improve the course so the golfers are happy. the most important part and exciting part is how we opened up glen eagles. that's one of the mandates when i took over the lease nine years, nine months ago, tom you have to open up glen eagles. it's been
closed to the community for too long. i know what they're talking about. i was part of that community and we did open it up and i think the testament of the community leader who is testified today proves that and we're not done yet. we want to finish the job we started. we look forward working with the recreation and park department in doing that. thank you very much. >> thank you.
