Petersburg suffered another blow financially on Friday after a vendor repossessed equipment from a city-owned golf course.
The vendor repossessed landscaping equipment at Dogwood Trace due to nearly $10,000 in non-payment.
The city says they are disappointed that the vendor took this course of action instead of setting up a payment plan with the city.
Petersburg says they have plans to keep the golf course open.
The city has been struggling with financial problems and has hired the Robert Bobb group to get the budget under control, following "historic overspending" that put the city $19 million in the hole.
Earlier this year, over $390,000 in Fire Department equipment was repossessed, with another $32,000 worth coming under threat.
The city also cut millions from the school budget at a time when achievement scores remain below state averages by double digits.
The latest repossession comes only a week after School Board members traveled for a conference despite the budget constraints.
