Chairman of the Sheridan County Fair Association Board of Trustees and current interim facilities director at the fairgrounds, Steve Eliason, now has the board's authority to hire a new facilities director. Sheridan Media's Chris Foy has the story.


The authority was granted following a unanimous vote by the fair board at a special meeting Thursday night.

Since former facilities director Melissa Albrecht stepped down in early February, the board has received 28 resumes for the opening - a number which Eliason says is now narrowed down to six candidates. He explains.

Eliason also reiterated that the Sheridan County Commissioners in no way had anything to do with Albrecht's resignation.
