The purpose of the Fair Board, as set forth by the BOCC, is to organize, promote, oversee, and financially account for the annual Montrose County Fair and Rodeo, negotiating fair-related contracts and conducting fair-related business and activities as deemed appropriate. The Fair  Board will review and approve expenditures of fair-related funds  budgeted, will collect fees as a result of fair-related activities and  pay any invoices or expenditures submitted to and approved by the Fair  Board for payment.

 The Board may assist in the development and implementation of rules and  regulations, in concert with the Fairgrounds Business Operations  Manager, regarding group and individual usage of the Fairgrounds &  Event Center facilities. Such regulations are subject to BOCC approval.
