Circus to raise funds for Sabina pool
By GARY HUFFENBERGER
After having the law director review the contract, Sabina, Ohio Village Council on Thursday approved the idea of bringing a circus to town as a fund-raiser for the public pool.
The Kelly-Miller Circus is a fund-raising circus that will provide the promotional flyers and print the tickets. The village of Sabina will have to pay the circus a non-refundable $290 upfront, be in charge of selling tickets, and provide police and dumpsters during the event.
The village will get a percentage of the ticket sales, said Sabina Director of Law Melissa Upthegrove.
In examining the circus’ contract, Upthegrove described it as a standard contract that is “fine” from a legal standpoint.
“I don’t know whether this is going to make you money,” Upthegrove said at one point.
Village council members unanimously approved going ahead and contacting the circus to finalize matters.
The circus is scheduled to be in Sabina, Ohio next May 17, 2011. Further details will be announced later.
