Lee County--An advisory panel says the Grand Island Golf Club is a drain on Lee County's budget and the county should sell it.

The commission created the citizens' panel to review Grand Island's history and financial statements.

One member told us he didn't think the group spent enough time on the study and that Chairman Tim Holly forced a vote too soon.

Six members voted to sell, two voted not to sell, and two didn't vote.

 "The people that did vote for selling it look at the numbers and They decided it would be better off not being spent by tax dollars," says panel chairman, Tim Holley.

It will now be up to the commissioners to decide whether to follow through with the panel's decision.
