I wrote a story in March after a city elected official gave me documents that she said showed possible theft and mismanagement at the city of Frederick's golf course. The city and its police department opened investigations to look into the information.
I wrote a follow-up story a few weeks later after receiving more documents through a PIA request that showed that the longtime golf course manager did not pay the city back thousands when placing ads for his private courses in the newspaper and on the radio. That's against his contract, but the city wasn't keeping tabs of it either.
This week, we found out that he resigned: "Clustered Spires golf professional resigns amid investigation." We don't know why yet, as the police investigation is still in progress and the mayor declined to talk to us this week. The golf course manager also hasn't returned our requests for comment yet.
I'm no longer covering this story, as I started on a new beat, but here's hoping the public finds out why he resigned, and what the city and police found in their investigations. After all, my second story already showed that taxpayers' money was misused in at least one instance.
