(10-18-18) The Auglaize County Fair Board on Wednesday night held a special meeting, in a 10 to 6 vote the board made the decision to remove current fair manager Jack Hayzlett from his position.

The board did not move into executive session during the meeting, but remained in open session. Hayzlett was given the opportunity to address the board, but instead of discussing the issue after he was finished, a motion was made and seconded and went straight to a ‘secret’ vote.

Hayzlett replaced long time Fair Manager Fred Piehl after the 2017 fair was completed.

The interim Director will be the current fair board president Ed Doenges. No timeline has been set when a permanent replacement will be named.
