City councilors are holding off on making any changes to its land lease with the Fair Board.

At the end of April, Fair Board members requested a “perpetual” lease to ensure that the site of the East Otter Tail County Fair would be secured well into the future. The board is currently raising money for a new $100,000 cattle barn, and wants to make sure the fairgrounds won’t be moving any time soon.
