Fight over attraction could be near end
Wisconsin nonprofits working on Circus World deal

Two nonprofits that battled over control of Circus World 18 months ago are now close to a deal that could stabilize operations of the attraction.

The boards governing the Circus World Museum Foundation and the Wisconsin Historical Society are expected to act on the revised lease and management agreement next month. The executive director of the Historical Society says the two groups are hashing out details of the agreement that would allow either side to terminate the deal.

The Baraboo News Republic reports the agreement will also determine the conditions under which the deal could be terminated and steps that should be taken to remedy any issues.
