Forsyth County commissioners spike a proposed miniature golf course at Triad Park, “a signal that the stronger Republican majority on the board might take a closer look at spending.”

I would say that pulling the plug on a mini-golf course isn’t necessarily indicative of commissioners’ commitment to tighten the county’s belt, except for the fact that the projected cost was $1.3 million.

I’m no expert, but that sounds awfully high.
