The Girl Scouts of Eastern Iowa and Western Illinois can continue to make financial decisions about the group's property without a vote from members.

That's the order coming from a judge.

Last year, the organization announced it would sell four of its camps, but after backlash from members, it decided to re-purpose those camps.

That started a court case in which five members sought an order to allow members to vote on decisions like that in the future.

But, more than a month after the two day trial, a judge now says that's not necessary.

In a statement to the media, Teresa Colgan, chair of the GSEIWI board of directors, says the board members are ready to put this in the past.

"We are ready to move past this and look forward to continuing our work - which is to build girls and change lives."

CEO Diane Nelson says the council will continue to provide excellent opportunities for its members.

"Girl Scouts of Eastern Iowa and Western Illinois will continue to provide an amazing outdoor experience for girls. We are excited about working with our members to create life-changing experiences - through many avenues, including camp, programs, community partnerships, travel and adventure - for girls throughout our council!"
