Clark Public Utilities helps fairgoers keep cool

first_imgIt’s been another sweltering year out at the Clark County Fair. Luckily for fairgoers, Clark Public Utilities is there to help them beat the heat, serving up ice-cold cups of water. It’s something they’ve been doing for more than 25 years, giving away tens of thousands of cups every fair.“I’ve been involved with the fair for 27 years … and I don’t know of a time when they were not involved with this fair,” said outgoing Fair Manager John Morrison.Morrison said that Clark Public Utilities typically gives away 47,500 cups of water over the course of the ten-day fair. Fairgoers can collect the water — as much of it as they would like — from Clark Public Utilities’ booth in the fair’s Exhibition Hall.“It’s such a simple thing, and yet people really appreciate it,” said Stephanie Fauser, who has been working with the utility for a year and half. Fauser was one of four employees working the first four-hour shift at the booth.As of noon on Thursday, the Clark Public Utilities team had given away 40,700 cups, and was on track to raise that number by at least a few hundred more by the end of the day.last_img
