You could leave out the footer, but give the div#content_panel the attribute of clear:both. In fact, leaving the footer div out of the content div is better semantically anyway. DogsGhost is correct also in correcting the name of that div – try content-col-wrap or something.

I often double up on my clear:both’s by giving the attribute of overflow:hidden as well – this makes sure that the content_panel actually wraps around the entireity of the nested columns and lets you apply a nice faux-columns background image :)
