Cheyenne County’s Commissioners addressed ongoing liability issues with fairground buildings in Monday’s regular meeting.
Use of the fairground buildings have been an agenda item and topic of discussion in almost every meeting since the construction of the Pavilion building last year.
Candy Glass came before the Cheyenne County Board of Commissioners Monday to request the use of the Pavilion building by the Sidney Wranglers 4-H club.
The community members that gathered in Monday’s meeting to discuss the use of the building, including the Commissioners, were all in agreement that the building should be used more, especially by the 4-H youth.
“We have a responsibility that everything is covered, and that liability is where it’s supposed to be.” Commissioner Philip Sanders said. “I think we will get there we just have to cover every base,”
Marty McMillen, Chair of the Pavilion Committee, suggested speaking with a equine attorney to create a liability form to use in various situations where horse riding occurs.
For now, the date request for use of the Pavilion building by the Sidney Wranglers and all 4-H riders was approved; however, the Commissioners plan to have Cheyenne County Attorney Paul Schaub speak with an equine attorney to discuss further liability issues.
