2 I The Lovell Chronicle I October 20, 2011 County, fair board move forward BY KARLA POMEROY The Big Horn County Fair building and ground maintenance will be turned over to the county and the county will pro- ceed with changing how it budgets for the fair after further discussion Tuesday at the regular commissioner meeting. The commissioners and the Big Horn County Fair Board have met several times this month to discuss options for mainte- nance and budgeting and agreed on three items last week during a work session. Fair Board member Willie Bridges pre- sented a letter outlining the three main items agreed to during last week's work session. The first is a two-year budget to be set for the fair. In the letter, Chairman Marry Moody wrote, "Because of the way the fiscal year falls and the timing of the county fair, this method would be benefi- cial in helping the fair board prepare their budget and would help eliminate some of the budgeting problems we have been ex- periencing for years." Commissioner Keith Grant said he would like to have the fair budget incorpo- rated into the general fund budget as a de- partment and removed from the having to figure out a specific mill for the fair budget. Chairman Jerry Ewen said he spoke with the county's accountant Jim Reilly and he is willing to work with the coun- ty and fair board to set up the fair budget within the county's general fund. He said to handle the need for the fair to write checks quickly for premium checks, pig wrestling calcutta checks, en- tertainment checks and others during fair week a line item could be prefunded with a fair board checkbook available for those expenses. He said proper checks and bal- ances would be built in for use of the check- book. The commissioners directed Clerk Dori Noyes to set up a meeting with herself, Treasurer Becky Lindsey, fair board mere- bers, commissioners and Reilly to work on the budget. Ewen said the county would not take over payroll until the first of the year to avoid any W-2 conflicts. The second item is to request that the county take over the building and ground maintenance at the fairgrounds. Bridges said County Maintenance Supervisor Fred Werner would hire employees to handle the maintenance and oversee these employees. The fair manager, once hired, would work with Werner in setting maintenance prior- ities and projects. He said the fair has budgeted about $20,000 annually for maintenance, with this year about $13,000 spent on one phase of the electrical upgrade, which will be re- quired to continue the next few years. Grant asked Werner if he was pre- pared for the additional work during fair week. "There's a big load during the fair," Grant said. Bridges added that someone has to be available 24 hours a day during fair week to handle stopped-up toilets and other middle-of-the-night issues. Werner said his initial idea is to hire a full-time employee that would be assigned to the fairgrounds March through Octo- ber. "I'm looking for ways to get the most maintenance for a reasonable price," Wer- ner said. Bridges noted that Park County is also looking to move the building and grounds maintenance from the fair budget to the county budget. Jerry Ewen said they have been con- tacted by commissioners from another county about fair budgeting as that county is also having funding issues with its fair. "We're not alone," Ewen said. The third item was to request addition- al $30,800 "due to the budget misunder- standing that we encountered this year," Moody wrote. The commissioners approved a motion to transfer the funds from cash reserve to the fair board. Bridges said with the motion the board will proceed with hiring a new fair man- ager, noting interviews have already taken place. Clerk Noyes addressed the commis- sioners concerning comments made two weeks ago regarding the budget misunder- standing. Noyes said she changed figures to the fair board's budget only after phone calls to Bridges and having Bridges sign a new budget request. The need for a change, she said, was from a mathematical error regarding the $20,000 cash reserve listed on the fair board's budget form. She said she and her staff are always willing to work with the fair board and other boards during the budget process, in- cluding filling out the budget form that has been used the past eight years.
