Fair and Fairgrounds
Coordination and resource sharing between the Fair and the rest of the county government organization stems from an agreement adopted in 2010 by the Board of County Commissioners and the Fair Board. The Fair and Fairgrounds Agreement, in the form of a memorandum of understanding (MOU), is designed to clarify and reinforce the partnership between the Fair Board and Board of Commissioners in support of the annual Fair event and fairgrounds property. The agreement memorializes a more focused role for the Fair Board: to plan, prepare and produce the County Fair. The agreement also discusses the creation of a Fairgrounds Advisory Committee (FAC) to provide advice and counsel to the Board of Commissioners on the Fairgrounds Master Plan, Fairgrounds Capital Projects Plan and other major site-related initiatives.
