PRICE COUNTY: FAIRGROUNDS - POSSIBLE SALE AND FATE OF HISTORIC BARN [Article #1]

The Price County fairgrounds has been in the spotlight recently as Price County decides if they should sell the property to a private party and the fate of the historic barn.

While the fairgrounds has not been sold yet, Price County Administrator Nick Trimner stated, "Price County has been approached by the Baratka family. They would like the county to consider selling the property so they could invest in the facilities in order to hold larger and more events. We are currently having a title search done and looking at the county’s options. The county has not looked at the terms of any potential sale of the property."

If the county did decide to sell the fairgrounds, there would be a long-term lease allowing the Price County Fair Association, http://www.PriceCountyFair.com, to operate the fair on that property. The lease would also allow the Price County Antiques Association to remain established at the fairgrounds. The Boy Scout building, 4-H building, and the schoolhouse would also remain at the fairgrounds. According to Nick Trimner, "There may be more to that long-term lease that has not been identified at this time. If there is a sale to a private party and they were to ever consider selling, or go out of business, the county would have a first right of refusal to get the property back."

Some residents believe the county should own the fairgrounds, perform needed maintenance, and hold more events there. The county, however, is hoping that if a private party owns the property they would invest more into the property than Price County can with its current budget. More people would likely be drawn to the area if more community events were held at the fairgrounds.

One building that does need maintenance is the historic barn, which had one damaged wing removed and was closed to the public at the 2021 Price County Fair. "Taking into consideration that the building has been deemed unsafe for use, the county has considered asking for quotes to remove the building," Nick admitted. "However, the potential buyers would like us to wait until a decision to sell or keep the property has been made." The Buildings and Grounds Committee is currently overseeing this topic.

There have been a number of county meetings regarding the fairgrounds and there will be more meetings before a final decision is made. Nick advised, "The public is welcome to [come to] those meetings and speak during public comment or contact their [county] board representative."
