Allen County commissioners continue to chew on the idea of helping a Humboldt grocery store get off the ground.

Commissioners received an update Tuesday on Humboldt’s Our Hometown Market from City Administrator Cole Herder and grocery store proprietor Scotty Welch.

Welch said he’d come to see if commissioners had any follow-up questions after last week’s meeting, when he and his wife Amy approached the commission to form a partnership that would help launch the new store, specifically via the county helping purchase refrigeration units designed to lower potentially devastating utility costs.
