Again, I gotta wonder. . who believes that the fair is such an albatross around the county’s neck..especially after it was discovered that the person responsible for the fiancial shortfalls is sitting in the pokie?
And he supplied this link explaining the terms of the deed;
The terms of the gift also stated that, “In the event of the failure of the grantee to hold such fairs or exhibitions for five consecutive years, then, in that event, the said premises and title shall immediately revert to the grantor or next of kin to the grantor, with the right of immediate possession.
And these questions still remain;
• Is one of the commissioners an attorney representing the company wanting to purchase the land?
• Did several commissioners receive political contributions from the company wanting to buy the land?
• Does the company that wants to purchase the land do the appraisal of the property?
• Would there be a posibility of a referendum for a public vote if the county commission decides to sell the land?
The local MSM media needs to start doing more digging before it is too late. Like I have said, if some company wants the land, sell it to them, but you better be building us a whole new fairgrounds (with the possibility of connecting it with a new Events Center) and the county better be getting yearly dividend checks from the quarry.
