ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Commissioners recently appointed themselves to the Parks and Recreation Authority to oversee the day to day operations at the course.

County Administrator Alan Ours has been working with the course manager to slash the debt.

Tonight they're expected to reveal as much as $110,000 in cuts, but that's only about two-thirds of what the course owes.

"We're doing what we have to do to get our expenses in line so that we can operate in the black so to speak," said Lee County Commission Chairman Rick Muggridge.

Muggridge said selling the course for development isn't an option, because the course has no means of access other than a small driveway, and no developers have shown interest.

The group will meet tonight at 6:00 in Grand Island's Club House.
