ROCHESTER The city ended negotiations to buy the Rochester Fairgrounds after the price more than doubled.

"Our sole responsibility as a city government is to the taxpaying residents and business owners of Rochester, and a large purchase such as this must be conducted with all due diligence performed," City Manager Fitzpatrick said in a prepared release. "Unfortunately this purchase no longer makes financial or practical sense, and it is our responsibility to go no further in this process."
