The Grand Island City Council is moving forward with a plan that helps pay for the state fair to move from Lincoln. Grand Island’s state fair funding proposal puts a one and a half percent tax on food and non-alcoholic beverages served at restaurants, fast food joints, and by caterers. The tax will end once the city raises the five million dollars needed to pay for a new State Fair Building. That should be about six and a half years. The State Fair is moving from Lincoln to Grand Island in 2010.
