County officials may need to look farther afield or wait to find new vehicles because of supply chain issues.

Mitch Garner, Allen County public works director, said he received no bids when he was looking for trucks from four area dealerships. That’s because of a lack of inventory, Garner said.

“One of them said we may not be able to get them until next year,” Garner reported to county commissioners on Tuesday morning.
