LOGAN, Utah (AP) -- Logan officials say city money could be better spent on projects rather than the county fair. But that has sparked questions about the fair's future.

City leaders say they could save $150,000 by cutting ties to the fair and that money could be used on roads or other city services.

In the past, both Logan and Cache County have contributed about $320,000 to keep the fair park going. But last month Mayor Randy Watts said he wanted to cut back on that agreement.

City leaders say they shouldn't have to play more than the rest of the county for the fair.

But some say Logan sees more economic benefit from the fair than the county as a whole.

A joint meeting between the city and county is planned for later this week.
