After months of debate, Warren City Council failed to take action Wednesday on selling the Old Avalon Golf Course.

City Council members decided to table the proposal for now at the request of the legislation’s sponsor, Dan Sferra, who was not at  Wednesday night’s meeting. Several council members still have questions over selling the property.

“I think most council members would rather us lease that property and be able to have ongoing revenue generated from it,” said 7th Ward Councilman Eddie Colbert.

Council also wants to explore if they can sell mineral rights on the property.

Colbert said council needs to make a decision soon because the property is costing the city money to maintain.

Last month, three people expressed an interest in taking over the property. And late last month, the current operators filed a lawsuit against the city for breach of contract.
