EATON — The Preble County Sanitary Landfill hosted a ground breaking for its new administration and maintenance building on Monday, Oct. 24.

Reverend Ken Harbaum of Covenant of Peace Church opened the festivities with a prayer, blessing the property and praying for the safety of the people working at the facility. Commissioner Rodney Creech, County Commission President, followed by saying, “The Commissioners are excited that this project is coming to fruition after years of planning. We thank everyone involved for their hard work and support of the building effort.”

“The steel building will have an 88 by 60 foot footprint and the offices will occupy an area 40 by 60,” said Commissioner Chris Day as he explained the displayed building drawings. “The maintenance area will occupy the remaining 48 by 60 feet, providing a covered heated area for our people to work on the landfill equipment.”

“We also wish to thank the men and women who work here on a daily basis, providing a safe location for the proper management of the County’s recyclable and waste streams,” said Commissioner Denise Robertson.

The building was designed under a contract with T&M Associates. The site work is being performed by C.G. Construction and the building contractor is Arcon Builders.
