Buttars would like to see improvements to Cache County Fairgrounds buildings

The 2015 Cache County Fair and Rodeo is coming up soon, opening to the public on Thursday, August 6 and continuing through Saturday, August 8. Cache County Executive Craig Buttars is hoping a lot of people will be at the Fairgrounds during that time.

He is also hoping that by this time next year, or at least by 2017, there will be a lot of new improvements at the Fairgrounds.

Buttars told members of the Cache County Council Tuesday that right now he is exploring different funding options.

“Bonding would be one possibility,” Buttars said, “probably not the most attractive option right now. A dedicated RAPZ Tax for several years, we could dedicate the RAPZ Tax for that. We do have some surplus budget right now, some in our budget reserve.”

The estimated cost is $5.2 million to $5.5 million. Buttars said plans are for a new multi-purpose building that would take the place of all the old exhibit buildings.
