SCIOTO — In their first meeting without Commissioner Mike Crabtree, the Scioto County Commissioners held an emotional session Tuesday morning.

Beginning with a moment of silence, Commissioners Bryan Davis and Cathy Coleman thanked the community for an outpour of support throughout the past week.

“It is incredible in a time of stress and need how everybody comes together,” said Davis, who sat in Crabtree’s seat in remembrance. “Mike would’ve been very pleased and he was well-honored.”

Davis vacated the chair position for the meeting and honored Crabtree.

“Mike is the honorary chair for today,” Davis said.

A brief session followed where all 11 items on agenda were passed, including a monthly invoice from Access Scioto County and a change order from the Scioto County Engineers regarding hot mix materials.

In terms of its 2020 CARES Act Capital Replacement, ASC reported a sum of $232,244 and a monthly invoice of $24, 285.

Following the adjournment, Davis reminded citizens to visit the county courthouse to drop off letters for Santa and to see the Christmas display in the rotunda.
