Emergency Operations Center to expand

The Clermont County Emergency Operations Center located 2279 Clermont Center Drive, in Batavia, will more than double in size with a planned expansion of their facility. The project will increase the current 7,800 square foot an additional 8,000 square feet and will be a two-story building.

A groundbreaking ceremony was held Monday, March 16 and Clermont County Board of Commissioners President Ed Humphrey welcomed all those in attendance and introduced State Senator Tom Niehaus.

“Today is good day for us,” said Niehaus. “Because this marks the day when we see our tax dollars coming back to Clermont County to provide safety services to all of us here in Clermont County. I believe there is about $800,000 in this project from state funds.”
