Batavia, Ohio. The Board of Clermont County Commissioners (BCC) has approved the creation of a Transportation Improvement District (TID). The Board recognizes that transportation is an essential and indispensable part of commerce and industry, and is of vital importance to the creation and preservation of jobs and employment opportunities for Clermont County citizens.
"The TID is a valuable tool that will enable the county greater flexibility in approaching transportation projects," said Clermont County Administrator David L. Spinney. "It is designed for increased collaboration with other government entities and will serve to advance work on the Eastern Corridor multi-modal project, among others."
The TID will work collaboratively with county, regional, and state agencies in financing, construction, repair, and maintenance of transportation projects (including air and rail projects). It will take advantages of opportunities and benefits made available only though a TID, to plan, construct, and improve highways, roads, bridges, interchanges, and accompanying capital improvements and developments throughout Clermont and surrounding counties.
The BCC has also established a board to oversee the TID. Five individuals have been appointed to serve, including Clermont Administrator David Spinney, Union Township Administrator Doug Walker, Miami Township Administrator Dave Duckworth, Clermont County Engineer Pat Manger and ED3C Executive Director Steve Wharton.
