GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (AP) - The Grand Island City Council won't vote until next week on its contribution to a legal fund aimed at keeping a Nebraska veterans home in Grand Island.

Mayor Jay Vavricek says he wants the council to discuss the matter but not vote at Tuesday night's study session because issues and amounts have changed.

The Grand Island Area Chamber of Commerce initially asked Hall County and the city of Grand Island to contribute $10,000 each, with an additional $5,000 each to come from the chamber and the Grand Island Area Economic Development Corp. The $30,000 fund was to be used in determining whether Grand Island could challenge the state decision to build a veterans home in Kearney instead of a replacement facility in Grand Island.
