City commissioners moved half way toward a planned buy of half of the former golf course on Country Club Road on Monday.
Despite the objections of Ward 5 Commissioner Brian Holley, the lone dissenting vote, commissioners gave first-reading approval to designating the purchase plan as a project for the Ennis Economic Development Corporation. Project approval would empower the panel to spend $300,000 on the purchase out of the proceeds of sales taxes as an effort to further economic development.
