Acting president of the Levy County Fair Association Bob Levesque appeared before Williston City Council Tuesday to request an agreement to hold the fair at the airport again this year. He pointed out that more than 8,500 people had visited the fair in 2007, benefiting the city's economy.

Levesque acknowledged that the event did not make a profit in its first year, but expects that the experience of last year will contribute to a more successful event in 2008.

The council granted the request for use of city property in 2008, but will allow no permanent structures at the proposed site.
