Air restored at the Boone County Fair

The Boone County Fairgrounds restored full air conditioning in the Multipurpose Building after concerns about how the fair board would cover the cost.

One of eight air conditioning compressors in the building broke earlier this month. The fair board, saying it lacked the money to do so, originally approached the Boone County Commission to see if it would pay for a replacement.

The commission denied the request on the basis that it would violate its lease agreement with the fair board.

“We just replaced it … and we have the bill here,” said fairgrounds manager George Harris. The bill will be paid from the proceeds of the ongoing fair, Harris said.
