The Hall County Board of Supervisors has approved $10,000 to help cover the potential legal costs of keeping a veterans home in Grand Island.

KHGI-TV reports the board voted Tuesday to put the money into what officials call a "war chest."

Other groups are contributing to the effort for a total of $30,000. The Grand Island City Council will vote Wednesday to add $10,000. The Chamber of Commerce and Economic Development Corporation will each give $5,000.

Gov. Dave Heineman announced in July that the city of Kearney was selected to house the new Central Nebraska Veterans Home. Local leaders, including Mayor Jay Vavricek, say the move will uproot veterans at the Grand Island facility, which has about 375 employees.
