Sheridan County Administrative Director, Renee Obermuller, and Public Works Director for Sheridan County, Rod Liesinger, have offered the fair board and fairgrounds staff their assistance with financial and operational duties.

Eliason says the board is currently working on a job description for facilities director and is seeking someone to fill the vacancy as soon as possible.
