The Curry County Fair Board has decided to rebuild the livestock pavilion's roof.

andquot;It's a great step, and it's the first step towards creating a multipurpose building,andquot; said Fair Manager Clay Feeter on Tuesday.

The board unanimously voted at its Thursday night meeting to repair the storm-damaged roof after board member David Hoenie presented a three-phase plan for renovating its buildings.

The board has been working on a blueprint for turning the entire fairgrounds, now called the Events Center, into a multipurpose conference and events center.

andquot;We'll fix the center to really be a county fair,andquot; said Feeter.

Feeter was directed to begin looking for a contractor to do the job, which will be financed with money from the Forest Service fire camp lease.

The fire camp, a base for crews fighting the Biscuit Fire this summer, occupied the entire fairgrounds. It closed Monday and the fair resumed normal operations.

The camp added $262,500 to the fair coffers, which were $40,000 in the red at the beginning of the year. The roof is expected to cost about $85,000 to replace.

About 1,000 square feet of the roof was blown off during a storm two years ago, said Feeter, and the remaining roof leaks.
