Contract Controversies & Financial Woes Fail to Stop Vermont State Fair on CarnivalWarehouse.com

In February of this year, Richard Rivers, the long-term general manager and president of the Board of Trustees of the Rutland County Agricultural Society, was fired by the board. Within a few weeks of that action, another controversy erupted, when the board abruptly cancelled contracts with vendors and entertainment providers that were signed by Rivers.

In February, following the board's termination of the Fair Manager, they also cancelled without explanation about a half dozen entertainment contracts on the basis that Rivers did not have the authority to issue contracts.
Then in early September, Richard Rivers, manager of the Vermont State Fair, as well as president of the Rutland County Agricultural Society's board of trustees, filed a wrongful termination lawsuit in Rutland civil court.

RUTLAND - Richard Rivers has been removed as head of the Vermont State Fair, and the organization is conducting an internal audit.

The board of trustees of the Rutland County Agricultural Society voted at a special meeting Feb. 8 to remove Rivers from his posts as the organization's president and as general manager of the fair.
Rivers referred all questions to his attorney, Matthew Hart, who could not immediately be reached for comment Tuesday afternoon.
The dispute between the two men saw Rivers taking an order against trespass on Kelley, forbidding him to enter the fairgrounds.
Prior to that election, Kelley argued that having Rivers in both positions would undermine the checks and balances within the organization, giving one person too much power.
