GIRARD — The Crawford County Commission discussed a bucket truck bid, an upcoming work session, and more during its regular meeting Friday.

1. The commission aims to purchase a bucket truck for the county. Identified on the Purple Wave website during the March 20 meeting, this truck would help clear some of the trees off of the rural roads.

2. At least one commissioner is set to attend the Kendall Packaging Corporation open house with special guest Governor Jeff Colyer at 10 a.m. Thursday at 1901 East 27th Terr.
