The Defiance County fair board has reversed an earlier decision, and has now decided to once again allow people to continue renting horse stalls at the fairgrounds.
Last month, the board said it was going to stop renting stalls and close the track for part of the spring and summer, due to the fact that some renters had not been paying rent or were behind on payments.
Now, the board says an agreement had been reached to allow only those individuals who were up-to-date on stall fees to continue to rent the facilities.
Part of the new agreement now says that renters will not be able to use the track when a new 200-foot long wall is installed in front of the stage. The use of the horse racing track was not part of the original stall rental agreements. It was simply considered a perk of housing at the fairgrounds.
