IRONWOOD - After discussions during the Gogebic County Personnel and Negotiations Committee meeting and the County Board of Commissioner’s meeting, the board voted to take over collections and administration of all future rental and storage revenue from the county fairgrounds in Ironwood. Committee member Jim Lorenson said there has always been some confusion with regard to that revenue and now the process will be streamlined. The new system will apply to all buildings at the fairgrounds. In the past, the Fair Board has handled such transactions. The board also voted not to allow rental of the fairground areas for events until the board has hired a fairground administrator who will handle the duties currently overseen by interim fair coordinator Juliane Giaikino. Rental agreements already scheduled would be the exception.
