During a record 15-minute meeting, Allen County commissioners discussed SPARK funding from the federal government on Tuesday and badly needed road repairs.

Allen County has spent about half of its $2.4 million in SPARK funding from the federal government provided via the CARES Act, said Lisse Regehr, CEO of Thrive Allen County.

She suspected that by the next reporting period, however, much more of the money would report being distributed.
