With a heavy heart, Allen County commissioners began Tuesday’s meeting by honoring the passing of former Sheriff Ron Moore, who Jerry Daniels said was “one of the main reasons [he] became a law enforcement officer.”

Moore, who served as sheriff for 20 years before retiring in 2000, died Saturday at age 69.

The Commission then heard from Jessica Sager of CDL Electric Company, which provides heating and air services to the region, including out of their new office in Humboldt.
