IRONWOOD — With only nine weeks remaining before the Gogebic County Fair, members of the Fair Board are voicing concern about fairground structures that were earmarked for demolition this year.
“I don’t know what’s going to happen,” said Chairman James Byrns, who added that the downstate contractor hired by the Gogebic County Board of Commissioners could show up any day to address the deconstruction.
He conceded that the long winter, more snow than usual and resulting extended road restrictions have been obstacles to addressing the work.
