Allen County's beleaguered rock crusher

Despite being a little more than a year old, it seems the rock crusher the county purchased for just over $1 million in 2018 has been broken down more than it has been crushing rock.

Public Works Director Mitch Garner had the belts replaced on the crusher over the summer. Those same belts broke again last week, this time incurring damage to the crusher itself.

Garner explained there are eight belts on the machine, of which one broke and tore through numerous pieces on the machine.
