Fair Improvements Approved By McKenzie County Board


The McKenzie County commissioners approved $29,792 on June 7 for a fencing project at the McKenzie County Fairgrounds.

Tim Jorgenson, county fair board member, said the chain link fence will be located between the parking lot and the rodeo grounds.

Commissioner Kathy Skarda asked, “Have you felt like you have outgrown the area there?” She said she heard some concerns from 4-H members.

Jorgenson answered that there is enough room at the current location, “if we get it like we want. We’re working on it.”

He said the fair board has a plan for fair improvements. “It revamps the whole fairgrounds.”

But the plan is to make the improvements piece by piece through the years, he said. Commissioners requested to see the plans during a future meeting.

There was also discussion regarding the hockey and skating clubs using the multi-purpose building at the fair. Commissioners urged the parties to work together.

Board appointments during the June 7 meeting included Charles McNaney and Doug Olson for weed board, Larry Novak for water resource board, Dale Patten and Corine Brugh-Sage for human services board, Ray Mrachek and Lee Stevens for park board, Skarda for state fair board and Ron Anderson for fair board.
