House bill would benefit Clermont County projects

It was announced last week that $649,000 of the state’s capital budget is being considered for three projects in Clermont County.

If the capital bill, introduced as House Bill 699, passes the Ohio House of Representatives before the end of the year as it is expected to, the three projects which will benefit from the funds are the Williamsburg-Batavia hike and bike trail, the dock at East Fork’s William Harsha Lake, and the county’s communications and emergency operations center in Batavia.

The bill and the projects are sponsored and supported by State Senator Tom Niehaus of New Richmond, State Representative and Miami Township resident Joe Uecker, and State Representative Danny Bubp of West Union.
