Belmont County residents are still reeling from the announcement that Jamboree in the Hills has been placed on hold for 2019, officials are asking questions and hoping to find some answers.

Belmont County Commissioner J P Dutton was quite surprised that Jamboree was being placed on hiatus this year, especially since Live Nation hadn’t specifically mentioned a potential change in venue.

Dutton also expressed that the loss of the Sales Tax revenue Belmont County receives from Jamboree each year will be felt next July.

He hopes to see the issue resolve itself and see Jamboree in the Hills return to Belmont County in 2020.
