After a FOX19 NOW Investigation, the Clermont County Communications Tower has remedied all the fire code violations, officials said.

According to Assistant Fire Chief, Roy Short, all fire code violations cited at the Batavia tower located on Bauer Road has been fixed.

Below is the list of fixed violations:

• Removed all paper and cardboard items and anything blocking exits

• Removed multiplug adapters

• Replaced emergency lighting

• Fixed cabinet ventilation

• Posted address sign outside the tower

• Installed permanent electrical wiring and removed extension cords

Officials say the clutter and temporary wiring were related to the county transitioning from an older communication system to a new system. The old equipment had not been moved out of the building at the base of the communications tower.

“Once these violations were brought to our attention, we immediately began to address them,” said Ed Humphrey, President of the Board of County Commissioners. “We're pleased to receive a clean bill of health from Central Joint Fire-EMS.”
