County Fair Seeks Help After Losses

DUBUQUE, Iowa (AP) - The Dubuque County Fair Association is blaming declining attendance and rising energy costs for losses that have put the organization in a financial bind.

The fair's finance committee will meet with bank advisers Thursday to develop a proposal in which the organization would seek help from the Dubuque County Board of Supervisors.

Fair General Manager Jamie Blum says the fair has had losses totaling $111,570 in the past few years while energy costs have climbed by about $10,000. As a result, the fair is at the limit of its $100,000 line of credit.

Fair officials outlined the situation last week to the Board of Supervisors, which asked for a formal funding request.

Supervisor Chairman Wayne Demmer says officials need a better understanding before taking action.
