  • Comments and questions for the trustees: Neighbors are complaining about trailers on Donald road that have been there awhile.  The trustees acknowledged their issue and assured them that Zoning has been working on it for 2 years. George Eckert explained the steps and mediation he has been through with this property. This is a process that has to go through the court system which also takes a lot of time.
  • Tom Bixler came to the meeting to explain who he is and why he is running for county commissioner in May.
  • Deputy Pike said he has a work task force lined up to help with the Tate Township clean-up this Friday and Saturday.  He will be checking IDs to be sure they are in the township.

Average time to leave the station was 1 1/2 minutes and they averaged 5 1/2 minutes to be on the scene. The complete BTFD Mar 2018 Update is on the BTFD page.   They are still waiting on word for breathing pads grant application but they have heard that the pumper tank grant has been denied.  The ladder truck is in Columbus getting the cylinders fixed.  The trustees approved a motion to purchase the extended warranty on the heart monitors that communicate when they are in route with/to the hospitals.
  • Please go to the middle school on Thursday, April 19, 2018 to support the Ladies Auxiliary Quarter Auction.  All the money is used to help purchase needed items for the fire department.
  • Ed Stanley- reported 7 funerals in March and 3 foundation orders.  Once it gets dry enough to get heavy equipment out, they will be able to form the foundations and place the 18 stones on graves.  Meanwhile, the crew has been replacing road signs on the township roads with over 400 poles and signs so far.  These were purchased through a State grant at no cost to the residents.  We have received word that the Trisler Road culvert and pavement replacement grant has been awarded.  Tate Township’s matching portion will be $24,000.  The focus of the road repair work this summer will be on Happy Hollow Road.  The trustees opened the 3 bids and will compare their specifics and announce who the job is awarded to soon.  Once the road department is finished with the ditching and repairing, the paving company will repave Happy Hollow Road.

Hello, I am Gary Reed and I have been a Trustee since 2014.  I am a Bethel native, born in 1959 and raised here. I have worked hard my entire life to support this community, beginning with working with my father in 1976 at the Southside Services Station, which I purchased in 1990 and which has been in continuous operation ever since, expanding in the early 2000’s to include tool rental and an excavation company.  It is due to the good people and loyal customers of Tate Township and the surrounding communities that my business has been able to flourish.  It is one of my greatest wishes to give back to my community by supporting local businesses, school, and community activities. Through the years I have sponsored the wrestling and soccer teams, the high school score board, and more.

My daughter Hailey was born, raised, and educated in this community as well. Prior to her birth I purchased farmland in this community which I currently farm myself and which I believe gives me insight into the needs of other local farmers. In 2006, I married my wife Kay.

As a Trustee, I feel my 40 years of mechanical, excavating, and farming experience combined with the connections obtained over the years being an active member of this community enable me to understand how best to use my abilities and local resources to achieve what this community needs and wants.I take this position very seriously and want to see this community continue to grow and succeed.
