Golf course deal reached

When the Bijou Municipal Golf Course opens in a few weeks, the city will have a new agreement with property owner Knox Johnson to lease the parking lot.

The South Lake Tahoe City Council approved a one-year lease – amounting to $12,000 or 4 percent of gross receipts, whichever is greater – from Johnson last week. It also decided to explore development options with the Carson Valley man on a 5-acre parcel Johnson wants to make improvements on, city Parks Superintendent Steve Weiss reported.
