Trustees recently discovered additional space in the cemetery that eliminates the need for officials to purchase another cemetery.
Catanzaro said the township received a good deal on the Enon-Xenia Road site.
The county had operated a sewage treatment plant on the site that was decommissioned about 15 to 20 years ago due to EPA concerns, officials said.
The foundation and remnants of the sewage treatment plant are still underground, County Administrator Nathan Kennedy had said.
The property is also on a flood plain and next to a creek, Engineer John Burr has said.
Proceeds of the sale will go to the utilities department, which used utility user fees to purchase the site years ago, Kennedy has said.
Clark County Utilities and Solid Waste District Director Chuck Bauer said the utilities department hasn’t used the site for about five or six years because the department hasn’t been running projects out of the area.
“The money is not earmarked for anything in particular. It would go back into the general sewer fund and be used as part of operations of the department,” Bauer said.
“The inter-operations of the department will benefit from the revenue. Definitely, it’s well received,” Bauer said.
