RUTLAND, Vt. (AP) - The head of the Vermont State Fair has been removed from his post and the organization is conducting an internal audit.
The Rutland Herald reports the Board of Trustees of the Rutland County Agricultural Society voted at a special meeting Feb. 8 to remove Richard Rivers from his posts as the organization's president and as general manager of the fair.
When asked about the change, the group's attorney, Stacy Chapman, only would say an internal audit was underway and results would be presented to the society's membership in the coming months.
The board appointed Roger Pike as interim president.
Rivers referred all questions to his attorney, Matthew Hart, who couldn't immediately be reached for comment.
