Lexington budget and Frisbee golf

Recently, the Lexington City Council took a look at mayor Jim Gray's proposed budget that featured spending reduction in times of financial distress. According to an article by Beverly Fortune in the Lexington Herald-Leader yesterday, the city council made some changes.

One of the changes is to provide $150,000 for a Frisbee golf addition to a city park. The mayor was unhappy with these changes and was quoted as saying "It's not the right timing to take on issues like Frisbee golf."

I tend to agree. Lexington is suffering serious financial strain with problems like an increasing pension liability and increased sewer costs and taxes imposed by the EPA.

What do you think? Is this the right time for Lexington to be investing in Frisbee golf?
