TROY — The Miami County Commissioners approved purchases for a truck and crane for the Department of Sanitary Engineering during their meeting on Thursday, May 9.

The commissioners accept a quote from Valley Ford Truck Inc., of Cleveland, for the purchase of a 2024 Ford F-450, 4×4, cab and chassis for $56,888.

Additionally the commissioners accepted a quote from KE Rose, of Huber Heights, and authorized said company to furnish and install a Liftmoore Crane to the new service truck for $67,250.
