Counties truly matter in countless ways

BATAVIA, OH (April 1, 2020) – Imagine a world with nowhere to call to report a crime or house a criminal — a place with ramshackle roads, polluted waterways, unsafe drinking water, decimated farm fields, limited job opportunities, and no services for seniors, veterans or the developmentally disabled.

Thanks to county government, we don’t have to face such a situation.

The nation’s 3,069 counties provide essential services to create healthy, safe and vibrant communities, serving more than 300 million Americans.

Clermont County and all counties take pride in our responsibility to protect and enhance the health, well-being and safety of our residents in efficient and cost-effective ways.

Clermont County prides itself on its commitment to our citizens, the stewardship of our resources, and the continuous search for innovation.
