This event celebrates the garden center’s $1.3 million capital investment and addition of 20 full-time jobs in Colerain Township.
For Township Trustee Jeff Ritter the project is another exciting sign of the times in Colerain: “This expansion of White Oak Gardens is yet another indicator of the strong business climate in Colerain Township, and the unprecedented economic development in the Township that we've seen over the last five years. I want to congratulate Jeff Webeler and his family for this milestone in their company's history, and wish them the best of luck for continued growth and success"
Colerain Township has seen a number of successful business retention and expansion projects in recent months which prompted President of the Board of Trustees Michael Inderhees to comment, "White Oak Gardens’ continued success and the new development at their site is a great example of family-owned businesses thriving here in Colerain Township. White Oak Gardens is the latest in an increasing number of businesses expanding their operations in the township and bringing even more jobs to our community."
"White Oak Gardens is the latest small, family-owned business to expand in our community. We couldn't be more excited for everyone involved!", says Greg Insco, Township Trustee, echoing the sentiments of many Colerain residents.
For Assistant Administrator and Director of Development, Geoff Milz, this reiterates the importance of the Township's Business Retention and Expansion program - just one part of the Township's three-pronged economic development strategy. "Economic developers know that communities are more likely to add jobs and capital investment from the expansion of businesses that are already in the community. This project is a great case in point and I couldn't be happier for the Webeler family and their wonderful business.

“This price represents a significant decrease in electric rates for residents. Currently, Township residents pay $0.0599 per KWH on their electric bill – a substantial savings over last year’s annual average Duke Energy price of $0.0631 per KWH. Now residents will save even more.” said Board of Trustees President Mike Inderhees.
“To achieve this price the Township was able to “blend and extend” its existing contract into one that locks in this low price until our residents’ May meter reading in 2020 – guaranteeing access to a safe, low rate for 3 years. It’s a big win for our residents.” said Township Trustee Jeff Ritter. In addition, those residents who are interested in using clean, renewable energy may opt-into Dynegy’s “Green-e Energy Program Option” for $0.0549 per KWH.
What does this mean for the average Colerain resident?
The average Colerain resident uses about 1,200 KWH of electricity each month and would have paid $908.64 for electric generation as a typical Duke energy customer last year. For the typical resident that was a part of the Townships aggregation program, they paid $862.56 – an annual savings of $46.08. With the new low price, Colerain Township residents can expect to save even more - $132.48 annually when compared against Duke’s 2016 retail price.
“When you think about the combined savings for our residents over the last three years as part of the program, the savings has been astronomical! Participating residents collectively saved $3,325,000 over Duke’s retail price!” said Township Trustee Greg Insco.]]>
In addition to receiving $27,000 worth of lightbulbs for free, this project will reduce the lighting related energy usage on the administrative campus by 58.4%.]]>
Customers would use orange bags provided by Simple Recycling to collect their items and leave them on the curb next to their recycling cart on their recycling collection day. When Simple Recycling collects a bag, they would leave a new bag in its place for the resident. The plastic bags will be recycled after the items are collected.
This new service would be provided free of charge. Simple Recycling would sell as many items for reuse as possible, first within Ohio, then nationally, then internationally. Items that cannot be reused would be sold for recycling. Only items that cannot be reused or recycled would be disposed of in the landfill.
Colerain Township encourages any resident currently donating materials to a non-profit group to continue donating those materials. This service is intended for those residents seeking the convenience of curbside collection.
