AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW) -- Augusta commissioners said no, and now the company that wanted to run the Patch has withdrawn its offer.
On Tuesday, commissioners did not approve a lease agreement with Virginia Beach Golf Management.
Some commissioners say the Parks and Recreation director should be hired first so the director would have a chance to look over the contract before it was finalized.
Virginia Beach Golf Management officially withdrew its offer on Wednesday, saying, "After successfully negotiating a lease agreement with the evaluation team and having the motion to approve a lease agreement fail three times, we have decided to respectfully withdraw our offer. VBGM has been in negotiations on another golf course and we feel we need to put our energies in that project."
