Commissioners Donate to Sale Committee

In an effort to improve the facilities at the Monroe County Fairgrounds, the Monroe County Junior Fair Livestock Sale Committee requested donations from various entities. This improvement includes the razing of the open class barn making way for a new 4-H Exhibit Barn. The total estimate for the project is $245,000.

During the April 14 meeting of the Monroe County Commissioners, the board members presented a $25,000 check to Dave Matz, president of the Monroe County Junior Fair Livestock Sale Committee. Also attending the check presentation were Adriane Seebach and her son Jared. Seebach is co-treasurer of the sale committee.

“This is a very good capital improvement,” said Commissioner John Pyles. “It will help the kids and the fairgrounds. The new barn will be a nice addition to the county.”

“The group presented the proposal and drawings,” said Commissioner Carl Davis. “We think it is a good use of the money.”

In other business, commissioners traveled to Salem Township 392 to appraise a request by Statoil to vacate and dedicate a portion of the township road. A public hearing was held in the afternoon. Upon the agreement of two residents living on the township road and township trustees, John Miller, Martie Winkler and Kenny Jones, the board granted the request, which was made to accommodate a new drilling pad. The oil company will install six inches of aggregate on the new section to conform to specifications for new township roadways.

Attending the hearing were representatives of Statoil, trustees Miller and Winkler and Monroe County Engineer Lonnie Tustin.
