SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — The Sioux Falls City Council has approved a deal to have a Nebraska-based company manage the city’s three golf courses for $75,000 a year.

The Argus Leader reports the five-year agreement also entitles Landscapes Unlimited to 11 percent of profits from course operations at Elmwood, Prairie Green and Kuehn Park. The 5-3 vote on Tuesday night came a week after councilmembers delayed taking action when the public and city officials voiced opposition.

Dakota Golf Management has managed the courses for 23 years and their contract expires Dec. 31.
