CLARION, Pa. (EYT) – Clarion County Commissioners Ted Tharan, Wayne Brosius, and Ed Heasley on Tuesday morning added Riverhill property back to the Tax Rolls after approving a sales agreement with Brian T. Acey of Clarion to purchase the Paint Township building.

The sales agreement is for $170,000.00 for the two parcels, Tax Map No. 21.

Commissioners purchased the property in 2019 for $150,000 from Charlene Holabaugh.

The building previously housed Riverhill Beverage Inc. Plans for the beer distributor building was to use it for storage of EMA Department trailers and equipment, all of the trucks and equipment and items used by the maintenance department, long-term record storage, a supply depot for all county functions, and storage for county vehicle depot. The size of the building is around 8,000 square feet.

Those plans quickly changed after the county purchased the nearby former Sorce warehouse.

The county proceeded to remodel the space to fit everything intended for the Riverhill property and much more, including the entire 9-1-1 operation, space for related offices, storage, and future development.

The commissioners did not intend to speculate in real estate; they ended up making $20,000.00 on the sale of the building.

Acey, a well-known local landlord, could not be reached for comments regarding plans for the building
