The Lincoln County Board of Commissioners is seeking applications from citizens interested on serving on the Lincoln County Fair Board. The County and Fair Board recently approved an updated memorandum of agreement (MOU) between the two parties. One provision of the agreement calls for the commissioners to appoint a Fair Board of up to five members. The current three-member board, which has served since 2009, will rotate off the board in the coming months.
The new MOU says the commissioners will seek to appoint a fair board that represents the following interests: land-based agriculture; youth/education; exhibitors, vendors, or local businesses; tourism promotion or visitor services; ocean science, commercial fishing, recreational fishing, or other ocean use sectors; and other interests as determined by the board of commissioners.
There’s no specific requirement that all the identified interests be included on the board at the same time. The overriding consideration will be the commitment of the prospective board members to the successful execution of the annual fair and its long-term plans and coordination of the community use of facilities outside the fair event. The term of service on the board will be three years.
