An effort to establish a preliminary plan to replace portions of the outdated irrigation system at the Quail Ridge Golf Course might secure more than a rudimentary review next week when the Baker City Budget Committee convenes to chart the fiscal future.

Irrigation system snags at the course are not a recent development and city officials want to at least secure funds to craft a feasibility study to tackle the challenge during the budget committee sessions next week. Baker City Manager Mike Kee said city staff has already adopted tentative steps toward shaping a viable plan.

"We've taken a step this year in the budget and in the proposed budget and have put a project out there to begin the planning for an irrigation system. It (the irrigation system) is not a new problem," Kee said. At issue is the irrigation system that services portions of the original nine - dubbed the "old nine" - holes of the course constructed by the Depression-era Work Projects Administration in the mid-1930s. The irrigation system for that portion of the course was positioned in the early 1970.
