Special Session to be held Aug. 14 to review FC Cincinnati plans

BATAVIA, Ohio – The Clermont County Board of Commissioners will hold a Special Session at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 14, in the Board’s session room to review a development agreement and draft of the Clermont County Port Authority preliminary term sheet relating to the proposed FC Cincinnati practice facility in Milford.

The Clermont County Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB), the City of Milford and FC Cincinnati will be asked to present the development agreement for the facility.

The CVB, FC Cincinnati, and the City of Milford have asked the Board of County Commissioners to approve a 1% increase in the lodging tax for Clermont County, which would raise it from 6% to 7%. The City of Milford has asked that the additional revenue be used to help repay city securities that will be used for property acquisition.

Commissioners said last year that before they voted on any increase in the lodging tax, they would hold a meeting to invite public input.

Commissioners are not expected to vote on the lodging tax on Aug. 14.

The County Administration Building is located at 101 E. Main St., Batavia. The Session Room is on the third floor.
