Racetrack underpass is money poorly spent. No one in their right mind believes this is a good idea. What a waste of thousands of dollars. With the football field no longer used there are so many accesses available that this simply makes no sense. The culverts to drain water are all that is needed with little or no maintenance cost in the future. The underpass will require money to maintain. If the county wants to spend money on bridges, I'm sure there are plenty actual bridges that need work other than the fairgrounds. Every expenditure that the county does should have payback or benefits. For a couple events a years and a slowly diminishing fair there just isn't anything here. There have been so many bad decisions by this group over the last 4 years that I can't see any worth re-electing. Really!

Not only bad decisions from the Fair Board , the Engineer doesn't sound like the brightest bulb in the pack either. How many other things are county officials going to waste tax payers money on before the people wise up and vote them ALL out.
