The Red River Valley Fair Association is looking at refurbishing the restrooms and café at the fairgrounds' speedway grandstand.

The sewer for the men's restroom needs to be redone, fair General Manager Bryan Schulz said Tuesday. The drains in front of the concession stand have failed and need replacing as well, he said.

Fair officials say the track's facilities are more than 35 years old. "We need to start looking at that - that could be another 100, 200, $300,000 project," Schulz told board members.

"We don't know what's going to happen in the future," Schulz said referring to health inspections. "This year, we passed every one of our health inspections. It's not going to be a cheap or easy project."

The Fair Association's building and grounds committee will look into the needed renovations of the grandstand's facilities. The changes will be included as part of the Fair Association's strategic planning.

The executive committee members will meet in early February with a planning consultant once one is hired. Schulz said the fair could spend at least $2,200 for the planning consultation.

The Fair Association is looking at developing a plan to identify goals after one, three and five years. Schulz said dates for the planning meetings are slated for Feb. 6 and 7.

In other business Tuesday, the Fair association unanimously voted to allow Schulz to sign off on Fair Association checks at the bank. Currently, 3 fair board members are only authorized to handle check-signing privileges.

The Fair Association next meets Jan. 15.
