Lee County-  In October, Lee County Commissioners said Grand Island Golf Course is draining nearly $20,000 a month from the county's cash reserves. It's a drain, they say must stop.

Tuesday night, commissioners are expected to get more information about recent cuts the course has made.  In August, an advisory committee put together to examine the golf course recommended Commissioners sell it.

The Lee County Administrator says the goals of Tuesday's meeting is for commissioners to understand Grand Island's budget. 

"Recently there were some budget cuts made to Grand Island, they want to understand those, they want to understand the number of employees they have, they want to understand the contracts they have for services, they want to understand everything," said Alan Ours, Lee County Administrator. 

Ours says once commissioners better understand the course's budget they can decide whether to raise fees or sell the course.
