The Wood County Commissioners just might have set a record for brevity, but if not, they came mighty close Friday morning as they zipped through a 12-item agenda in just 10 minutes.
With Wood County Judge Bryan Jeanes absent, Pct. 3 Commissioner Roger Pace conducted the speedy meeting which went off without a smidgen of discussion.
