Clermont County Commissioners to take immediate action to relocate the Clermont County Clerk of Courts

Batavia, Ohio. The Board of Clermont County Commissioners has decided to take immediate action to relocate the Clermont County Clerk of Courts office from the basement of the old County Courthouse(270 East Main Street) to the first floor of the new County Courthouse (attached to the old building, also at 270 East Main Street).

The decision comes following concerns expressed by Clerk of Courts, David Caudill at today's meeting of the Board of Clermont County Commissioners.

Caudill spoke during a presentation by Clermont County Health Commissioner, Dr. Janet Rickabaugh concerning steps the County has taken and will take in the future as the result of the Legionella pneumophila bacteria being found in the cooling tower at the Kahle Building, which houses several County offices. The Kahle Building is across the street from the County Courthouse.

While congratulating the County for its proactive stance is dealing with concerns at the Kahle Building, Caudilll stated that Clerk of Courts employees working in another County Building (the basement of the old Courthouse) were questioning their working conditions. He stated that one person working there has tested positive for the legionella bacteria.

Until a full evaluation can be performed in the basement of the old County Courthouse, the Clerk of Courts employees will be moved to the nearby first floor of the new County Courthouse.
