David Trouten, the Clerk of Courts for Belmont County, released the report of his office’s activities for July of 2018.

"The Bellaire Title Office is fully staffed," Trouten said. "This time last year it was closed due to a fire in the adjacent part of the building. It’s good to see the office thriving this summer."

In addition, the work to move the Title Office from its current location in St Clairsville to the recently acquired Health Plan Building is proceeding according to plan.
