County Denies Lease Request
December 19, 2018
Plans to purchase the Elks concession stand at the Cheyenne County Fairgrounds was greeted with a significant obstacle Monday morning.
In the Dec. 3 meeting of the county commissioners, James Lenzen met with the commissioners to discuss purchasing the building. The agreement would include purchase of the building and a five-year lease of the land it sits on. In the fairboard meeting that night, Lenzen said he does not want to compete with any nonprofit organizations. His intent is to have a place to prep and store food for his catering business, and to offer food during the county fair.
