Fair board discusses plans for new horse barn

Nemaha County Courthouse

(KMZA)--Representatives of the Nemaha County Fair Board met with the Nemaha County Commission last week to discuss plans to replace the horse barn at the fair grounds.

Meeting with the Commission were Deb Henry and Neal Haverkamp.

Discussion was held concerning the county acquiring land from the city of Seneca so that the county owns all the property where the fair activities take place. The Fair Board would pay the cost of the new building, but would ask the county to provide the land and the utilities for the building.

Commissioners advised they were supportive of the plan at this time, but asked that the Fair Board keep them updated on the progress of the new building.

In other business, the Commission approved a letter to be sent to the city of Seneca pledging $2,500 from the the county for the outdoor fitness court project. The amount is to be paid out of the county's Parks and Recreation fund.

Also at the request of the Jackson County Commission, the Commission voted sign a letter of support for the four-lane expansion of Highway 75, north of Holton.
