County chips in funds toward park building

By Staff | Jul 9, 2010

The Pierce County Commission approved $3,000 toward electrical wiring in the newly-constructed multi-use building at the Pierce County Fairgrounds in Rugby.

The decision came at the July 6 commission meeting after a request from Rugby Park District officials – Terry Wentz and Arland Geiszler – to contribute to the project.

“They (the commission) was very receptive,’ said Wentz.

The 48 foot by 72 metal building was put up recently, complete with a cement floor, in time for the Pierce County Fair, but there is still electrical work and insulation to be installed. To date, the project costs total just over $54,000, Wentz said. The Pierce County Fair Association has agreed to contribute to the building in the future when funds are available.

The park board hopes to have the building wired in time for the Good Sam Motor Club which will be holding a gathering at the fairgrounds in early August and need a nearby meeting hall.

Wentz and Geiszler both have received positive comments about the building and already have had requests from residents to rent it for such things as a family reunion and rummage sale. The park board is looking into establishing a rate to rent the building.
