— Marnell said that he felt Sheriff Richard Cutting and District Attorney Kristy Sprague should also give their opinion on the beer tent.

“If it passes, then we will treat and enforce it the way that we do with any other event,” Cutting said. “I worked when they had it there before, and there were problems. In this economy, it’s tough, and they are looking for different ways to make money.”

“What I worry about is all the stuff that can come with that,” Sprague said, who added that she wanted to see more from Connell and the fair board if the supervisors were going to ask for her official opinion.

Scozzafava, Blades, Marnell, Hatch and St. Armand Supervisors Joyce Morency voted against the resolution, while Boisen abstained from the vote. Chesterfield’s Gerald Morrow and North Elba’s Roby Politi were absent from the meeting.
