RUTLAND, Vermont — The Vermont State Fair is getting back on its feet after being over $200,000 in debt.
Don Chioffi of the Rutland County Agricultural Society, which runs the fair, tells Vermont Public Radio (http://bit.ly/1kW6i1u) more than half of the deficit has been paid off. A payment scheduled has been arraigned with the IRS.
The fair starts in Rutland on Aug. 29.
Earlier this year, the Board of Trustees of the agricultural society conducted an internal audit and voted to remove Richard Rivers from his posts as the organization's president and as general manager of the fair.
