Michigan State Fair property
Governor Snyder will be signing HB 4803, April 9, 2012.
"This is an act to authorize the state administrative board to transfer or convey a certain parcel of state-owned property
of approximately 6 acres in Wayne county; to prescribe conditions for the transfer or conveyance; to create a state
fairgrounds sale advisory committee; to provide for certain powers and duties of certain state departments and agencies
in regard to the property; to provide for disposition of revenue derived from the conveyance of the property; and to
provide for the disposal of fixtures and equipment on the property."
Also, regarding county fairs -
an amendment that states:
Sec 1 (3) The department shall attempt to dispose of surplus, salvage, and scrap fixtures and equipment on the property
described in subsection (1) by donating or selling the fixtures and equipment to county or other local fairs. The
department may dispose of as otherwise provided by law any surplus, salvage, or scrap fixture or equipment not
donated or sold to a county or other local fair. The property described in subsection (1) includes all surplus, salvage, and
scrap property or equipment remaining on the property as of the date of the conveyance or transfer.
We will now have to monitor when & how the surplus may be disposed of.
