The Sheridan County Fair Association Board of Trustees approved to move forward with an agreement with Verizon to construct a cell tower on Fairgrounds property. Facilities Director Melissa Albrecht explains the numbers of the deal that was made with Verizon.
Albrecht says that the next step is to gather public comment on the issue.
The 60 foot high cell tower will be located in between the Fairgrounds office building and shop at the south end of the Fairgrounds.
Albrecht also pointed out that the proposals from Architect Dale Buckingham for new infield restrooms continue to be way out of their budget.
Albrecht said that since they aren't 100% certain on where they want to put the building, the best choice may be to go with the mobile restrooms and showers until a final decision can be made.
