The Sheridan County Fair Association Board of Trustees at their meeting Thursday night once again discussed the possibility of allowing a Verizon cell phone tower on the Fairgrounds property. Facilities Director Melissa Albrecht says that the details still need to be worked out between Verizon and the Fair Board.

Albrecht said that Kevin Howell from Verizon will be invited to next month's meeting, and that they hope to work out an agreement at that time. The Board also agreed that the design for the new infield restrooms by Architect Dale Buckingham was a bit too much.

The design of the restrooms exceeded the budgeted amount of $150,000. The Board did however approve a motion to have Albrecht continue to work with Buckingham and Dave Engels on a scaled back version of what was originally proposed.
