At April’s Monthly Board Meeting, Hardin County Commissioner Roger Crowe addressed the Hardin County Fair Board in response to a request to have the County Engineer’s office reseal the county road spaces on the fairgrounds. Crowe made mention that while the engineer’s office was willing to reseal the county roads on the grounds, the office would need further compensation for the parking spaces on the grounds.
Crowe made note that the math equated to a 65/35 split. Commissioner Crowe then told the board that the Commissioners were prepared to cover the remaining balance that would be left to the fair board, which was approximately $8,471.
Kelly “Buck” Buchenroth, chairman of the Building and Grounds Committee expressed the thanks of the board.
We are all very thankful for the help and support from the Commissioners. They are a great asset in keeping the grounds maintained, and mamking it one of the nicest fairgrounds around the area.
Commissioner Crowe commented on behalf of the commissioners:
The Hardin County Commissioners have agreed to cover the cost to treat [the] additional areas. The total contribution by the Commissioners will be approximately $8,471. In addition to the road project and as has been done in years past, the County has made a $10,000 contribution to the Agricultural Society. This contribution has been placed in a capital improvement fund for future use.
