Clermont County waiving building permit fees

The Board of Clermont County Commissioners is waiving fees for building permits involving structures damaged by the March 2, 2012 tornado and severe weather that impacted the southern part of the county.

A building inspector found that over 250 homes, buildings and structures are in need of repair. Repairs require that permits be obtained and inspections performed before occupancy.

Citizens will find red tags on the doors of their homes and businesses if they have been determined to have suffered major damage, yellow tags are for minor damage, and green tags are for slight damage.

For additional information, contact a permit specialist at Clermont County Permit Central at 513-732-7213.
