Rumors of a possible go-cart and lawn mower racing facility at the Morgan County Fairgrounds perplex Sonny Wright.
The chairman of the Tennessee Valley Exposition, commonly referred to as the Morgan County Fair board, discounted such reports.
�We did start construction on a pit for a better facility for the demolition derby at the fair ... but I just heard of the lawn mower racing (Wednesday),� he said. �I don�t know how that talk got started.�
Councilman Ronny Russell, however, suspects the Exposition is contemplating more elaborate activities on the property.
Concerned Oak Lea residents alerted Russell to the construction activity at a recent neighborhood meeting. At the time, Russell was unaware of the situation, but following the meeting, he received more information about the project.
