Some citizens in Lincoln County are continuing their push for an Expo center on the fairgrounds.
The grandstand at the fairgrounds was damaged 2 years ago, and officials took it down. Since then, there has been a debate on how to replace the structure and utilize the insurance money.
Recently, the county board decided to rebuild a grandstand at the location. But last night supporters of constructing an expo center met in Merrill at a Town Hall meeting. They feel the building would bring in additional events and business to the area.
They also urged supporters to contact their respective county board members or attend the next board meeting.
