BATAVIA, OH — 2020 presented many challenges for Clermont County, with arrival of the COVID-19 pandemic in late winter. Thankfully, proactive planning and careful fiscal management allowed the county to continue to provide services without major cutbacks.
We’re proud of the county employees who demonstrated amazing innovation, flexibility and dedication during these extraordinary times. Many adapted their processes, serving customers via drop boxes, online forms and Zoom meetings. At times, they worked remotely and did what it took to safely provide services.
Clermont County pulled together to support those struggling during the economic downturn resulting from the pandemic. The county allocated millions of dollars of federal CARES Act funds to small businesses, schools and governmental entities.
In the midst of this challenging year, Clermont County chalked up one of its largest economic development wins ever when Nestlé Purina announced plans to build a huge pet food plant in Williamsburg.
Thanks to news like this, the future looks bright for Clermont County.
