    The Spencer County Fiscal Court Monday moved ahead with approval to purchase a software package for administrative offices, and a 2020 Ford Explorer for the sheriff’s office. The software, along with service plan and contract was purchased for nearly $40,000, while the vehicle, along with striping and emergency package equipment, totaled nearly $42,000.
    The court did not take action on a request made earlier in the year on purchasing new voting machines, despite the request being repeated by Election Board Member Steve Hesselbrock.
