IRONWOOD - The Gogebic County Board of Commissioners prohibited the use of several fairgrounds buildings on July 27, just two weeks before the Gogebic County Fair on Aug. 11-14. With less than two weeks left before the fair, the fair board met on Monday to discuss how to move forward with this announcement.
Gogebic County contracted the Houghton-based firm U.P. Engineers and Architects to perform a buildings study earlier this year. The study recommended that the expo building, poultry barn, horse barns and grandstand not be used by the public.
