Because of the discovery of the Asian Longhorn Beetle (ALB), the state of Ohio is restricting the movement of ALB host material and all hardwood firewood out of Tate Township and East Fork State Park.  That means that it is illegal to move regulated logs, firewood, stumps, roots, or branches, and any life stage of the beetle, out of those two areas.

Over the past several months, residents of Tate Township, the Village of Bethel and surrounding communities have been asked to support a picture fundraiser for Melvin Dean. The Bethel-Tate Fire Department would like to clarify a few things about this fundraiser:

  1. Melvin Dean has never been a member of the Bethel-Tate Fire Department. Mr. Dean was the Chief of the Bethel-Tate Joint Ambulance District before it dissolved in the spring of 2003.
  2. Melvin Dean did respond to New York City after the attacks on 9/11 on his own but was not sent in any official capacity.
  3. The Bethel-Tate Fire Department does not support or sponsor this fundraiser in any way.
  4. The Bethel-Tate Fire Department does not go door-to-door collecting monies for fundraisers.
  5. The Bethel-Tate Fire Department has contacted this picture fundraising company and asked them to stop using the fire department’s name.
  6. It is our understanding that they may be telling people that the picture session will be held at the firehouse, which is false.
  7. The Bethel-Tate Fire Department has contacted the Clermont County Sheriff’s Office and asks that any resident or communities please contact your local law enforcement agency if you are approached by these individuals.
If you should have any further questions or complaints, please contact the Clermont County Sheriffs Department at 513-732-7500.
