Voters in Boone County will have a chance to vote in November on the new livestock building proposed for the fairgrounds.
Boone County Commissioners decided on Monday that a bond election on the fate of the building will be held alongside Nov. 6's general election.
The project received six bids from multiple companies, including low bids of $2,9996,035 from Rathman Manning Corp. of Chapman, NE and $2,997,300 from Bierman Contracting, Inc. of Columbus, NE. The proposal from Rathman included 455 construction days, while the Bierman bid included 325 construction days.
The fair boar hopes that the new building would provide more education opportunities to youth and their families.
