Taxpayers start subsidizing golf courses. (Janesville Gazette, 1/23/2012)
Excerpt: For the first time since the mid-1980s, Janesville taxpayers are subsidizing the city's two golf courses.
In 2011, the subsidy was about $115,000.
That doesn't include $200,000 that the city borrowed for capital expenses.
In 2012, taxpayers will contribute about $1.60 for every golfer who tees off at Riverside or Blackhawk, the city's two public courses.
