DUNCAN, Okla. (AP) - Officials in a southern Oklahoma city have suspended the expansion of the Stephens County fairgrounds over building permits.

The Duncan Banner reports (https://bit.ly/1pRwZD8 ) Duncan city officials say work on the Stephens County Fair & Expo must stop, because they claim the county hasn’t obtained the proper building permits.

The fairgrounds director Mike Anderson says he’s upset about the delay. He says the county has provided city officials with all of the documentation it has asked for before and that “it doesn’t seem to be enough.”

The expansion is a $780,000 project aimed at making Stephens County a top rodeo and agriculture event venue.
