The Washington County Fair Association (WCFA) is seeking to make cosmetic improvements to the entertainment plaza at the Washington County Expo.
On Tuesday, the WCFA will ask county commissioners to approve a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to upgrade the plaza.
Enhancements included covering all exposed cracked insulation with PBR panels, installing new blinds in side rooms, and repainting all woodworking areas.
All materials and labor will be funded by WCFA, with no expectation of repayment or credit on your lease with the county to use the expo.
