The Chelan County Fair Board will meet this week to discuss all possibilities when it comes to the 2020 edition.

Commissioner Bob Bugert says they hope to have a decision by then, but no later than the end of the month.

"They were really looking at some of the major fairs like Grant County and the obviously Puyallup, or Washington State Fair, everything like that, how they were going to proceed. It looks like they are not, so I'm sure that's going to weight on the Chelan County Board's decision."

The drop dead date of July 1st is due to contracts that need to be signed.

This week's meeting takes place Thursday night.

Bugert says they are also considering an online auction for all the livestock that were adopted and raised by area students.

Meanwhile the Commissioners also are looking at their budgetary situation for both 2020 and 2021.

Doug England says they only have numbers through March right now, so they don't have the complete picture and much of the 2021 choices will be tentative.

"It's going to be very complicated and kind of a guess at this point, but [staff] will be able to put something together earlier. We will be able to make earlier decisions and we will modify those based on what's coming in."

England says sales tax is down from what was projected, but so are some expenses.
