“As part of our continued commitment to enhance our property and service to the Richland County community, Richland Public Health is pleased to kick-off our building renovation efforts,” Tremmel said. “This $500,000 investment will begin with the front entrance of Richland Public Health to provide easily accessible and high quality customer service to our community members.”
