County successful on second try for trucks

Commissioners agreed to buy two used trucks from Twin Motors, after a request for four trucks yielded no bids because of reduced inventory. Commissioners also discussed rock crusher repairs and the need for a 911 backup station.

A second try yielded two used trucks for county departments.

Mitch Garner, public works director, and Mark Griffith, road and bridge director, asked county commissioners to approve the purchase of a used truck for each of their departments.

The previous week, Garner told commissioners he’d come up short when seeking four trucks, two for each department. Dealerships did not supply bids, citing supply chain issues.
