Limestone County commissioners are still trying to get a sign donated by Farm Bureau Insurance, that will direct drivers to the fairgrounds, set up before the county fair begins, but they are running out of time.
Fairgrounds Manager Kenneth Ellis reminded the commissioners at their March 14 meeting that the county fair would begin with the Limestone County Fair Association Rodeo on April 8-9, followed by the horse show on April 10, and the youth livestock show and fair from Thursday, April 14, through Saturday, April 16.
The county first learned of the sign, a gift from Farm Bureau Insurance, at their April 13, 2015, meeting. They had originally hoped to install it at the intersection of Hwy. 14 and Jacinto, which is where visitors to the fairgrounds turn off Hwy. 14, to get to the show barn.
The court discussed the sign’s placement then, and again at the Dec. 28, 2015, meeting; and also at the Feb. 8 meeting.
