No quorum, no action at fair board meeting



Despite not having a quorum with only Chairman Felix Carrizales in attendance a few items were discussed at the Big Horn County Fair Board meeting.

Maintenance Supervisor Fred Werner said central heat and air will be installed in the multi-purpose building. He said the contractor will be working next week to install the central heat and the central air will be hooked up in the spring.

Other items on the agenda included the demolition derby, a compensation package for new fair manager Vangie Hackney, a report from the livestock sales committee that met last week and the building committee report.

The board’s application for consensus block grant funding will be before the State Loan and Investment Board today, Dec. 6.

Fair Board Vice Chairman Tim Flitner came to Tuesday’s commissioner meeting to touch base before attending the SLIB meeting.

Commissioner Keith Grant said the SLIB staff is pushing hard to have the consensus block grant projects not reviewed much since the projects already met approval by the commissioners and mayors but he still encouraged him to go to Cheyenne on Wednesday and visit with as many of the elected officials as he could prior to Thursday’s meeting. The State Loan and Investment Board is the top five elected officials for Wyoming.

Flitner said he and County Extension Ag Educator Dallen Smith will be attending and he believed engineer Willie Bridges would also be attending.

Flitner said, “We drew up some plans of what we want and what we want to see.”
