In city council business from Wednesday night, Aldermen suspended the rules to enter into an agreement with Walters Golf Management as it decides what action to take next in regards to the Spencer T. Olin Golf Course.  Century Golf Management currently runs the course, but has expressed a desire to end its relationship with the city in that capacity.
