HC Commissioners approve van purchase

NEW CUMBERLAND — The Hancock County Commission held a special meeting Friday afternoon.

The commission met by phone to approve the purchase of a used 2014 Ram Cargo van for $6,010 from Tri-State Motors.

The van is under the $15,000 maximum purchase amount set by the state, but the commissioners still wanted to make the purchase a matter of record.

The item came to the commission too late to be put on Thursday’s regularly scheduled meeting agenda.
