FARMINGTON (AP) — Beer sales have been approved for the Davis County Fair rodeo in August and the Olympic Command Performance Rodeo in February.

The City Council approved the county's application for a class B license.

"We want to test it during the fair and then do it during the rodeo every year," said Jody Gray, FairPark manager.

The Salt Lake Organizing Committee approached the county and said it was making a general request for all venue sites that beer be available to all the international attendees.

The Davis County Fair Board will decide when the beer permit will be used.

"We hope it will just be limited," Mayor Greg Bell said.

The Fair Board has agreed to stop beer sales halfway through the rodeo or other events, such as concerts.
