ROCK SPRINGS — Sweetwater County has spent about $1.4 million for the National High School Finals Rodeo.
The money includes improvements to the county fairgrounds in Rock Springs and the rodeo arena and shooting range in Green River.
The rodeo began Sunday and runs through Saturday at the Sweetwater County Events Complex.
Events Complex Executive Director Larry Lloyd says while it’s difficult to anticipate how much revenue will be collected by the end of the event, he expects the county to at least break even.
Lloyd said the rodeo should be in a black next year because the county won’t incur many one-time expenses it faced this year.
