Email News Alerts

It's time for the East Otter Tail Fair Board to renew its lease with the city.

The current five-year lease was intended to be short-term, while the fair task force implemented long range land acquisition, expansion and maintenance plans. The lease expires Dec. 31, 2008.


But five years later, the board and the city are still handcuffed as far as firm plans on buying or selling land, building an arena and repairing existing buildings.
