Dodge County could give building back to the fair

October 4, 2018

JUNEAU -- Dodge County is looking to give up its control of the youth building located on the fairgrounds in Beaver Dam. Dodge County Corporation Counsel Kim Naas said Tuesday at the county’s executive committee meeting, discussions are underway to hand the structure over to fair organizers.

She said at a past meeting 4-H has an interest in the building because of the many events they hold out of the building.

A 99-year lease would be terminated if the deal does go through and the Fair Association would then have control of every building on the fairgrounds. Nass said Tuesday the county does not pay rent on the building and no money was budgeted in 2019 for maintenance. She said the county board should see a resolution before them in October or November to finalize the agreement.
