Fair preparation plans under way
As is its custom, the City of Monroe will perform mosquito spraying and street sweeping services for the Monroe County Fair July 27-Aug. 2. The 36- member fair board inked a contract with the city at a meeting earlier this month. The city has performed the services for the past several years, said Warren Siebarth, fair manager. For the second year in a row, Nice and Clean, a Temperance firm, will collect grease from about a dozen food vendors on the fairgrounds during fair week. The board awarded the company a contract for its bid, Mr. Siebarth said. The firm recycles the grease to be made into another usable product, he said. The board also awarded the following contracts for this year’s fair: ■ Portable toilets and wash stations — Laji­ness Portable Restrooms of Petersburg. There are nine wash stations on the grounds. ■ Wood chips and shav­ings for 4- H livestock — Tractor Supply in Dundee. ■ Public address system — So u n d Doctor in Adr i a n . ■ Golf carts — Tourna­ment Fleet of Wixom will provide about 20 carts for board members and staff. ■ Trash pickups — Waste Management will continue picking up rub­bish as it has done for the past few years, Mr. Sie­barth said. Meanwhile, renovation of the south bleachers in the grandstand has re­sumed and is expected to be completed this week. A crew for Ryan Con­struction of Kalamazoo is placing new aluminum planks in the bleachers for spectators. The crew removed the old wooden planks last fall, but left before putting the new metal planks in. The same firm was used last year to replace the seats in the north bleach­ers. All of the improve­ments in the grandstand will cost about $90,000. The renovations are needed because of the large crowds that fill the grandstands for concerts, demolition derby contests and other shows.
