Springfield's 93-year-old Snyder Park Golf Course might be shut down due to budget cuts.<br /><br />Like many other publicly funded golf courses in the Miami Valley area, Springfield's three municipally owned courses all brought in less revenue than what was paid to operate them with taxpayer's money. Parks Director Leann Castillo says the financial outlook isn't good for the city-owned courses.<br /> Wed, 22 Jan 2014 12:03:21 +0000 Wayne Baker 44893 at http://wyso.org Developers Propose Recycling Center In Springfield http://wyso.org/post/developers-propose-recycling-center-springfield <p><font color="black" face="arial" size="2"><font size="2">A proposed state-of-the-art $2.5 million recycling center and solid waste transfer station that would be located on Springfield's south side has been met with resistance from many of the residents in that area.
