There was a time when the town of Clermont didn’t have “anybody around here,” Mayor Jim Nix said. Those simpler times are a thing of the past, according to the mayor. Sure, the population is still sparse — about 922 according to a 2015 U.S. Census estimate — but that’s an increase of 122 percent from the 415 who lived there in 2000.
