Tate Township Meeting Summary

The Tate Township Trustee meeting was held 7/11/17. Here is an overview of what happened.  The actual minutes are officially approved at the next (August) meeting.

  • The next township meeting will be August 8th, 2017.
  • A representative from Josh Mandel’s Ohio Auditor office was present to commend Kathy Brannock (Clerk/Fiscal Officer) and Trustees for partnering with the State and offer transparency to the public.  Tate Township’s fiscal records are accessible on the Ohio State Checkbook website.
  • With a 8/9/17 deadline to go on the ballot, the trustees decided to let the voters choose whether to allow them to form an aggregate in the effort to give township residents the option to lower energy costs.  This will be on the November ballot.  All residents will receive several mailings with details, information, and round table discussion dates. Expect your 1st mailing in early August.
  • Tate Township is forming a cooperative agreement with Franklin Township to upgrade and pave Trisler Road with a OPWC grant application.  They should know by November if the grant is approved.  This would cut Tate’s costs from 29% to 6.1% of the total job cost, a savings of about $94,000.
  • A waste franchise is forming with several area townships and some villages to reduce waste collection costs, add curb-side recycling, and offer additional services, if needed, for residents with handicaps.  No costs or actual contracts were discussed.
  • Sheriff Pike reported there has been an increase in breaking and entering in southern Clermont County since the beginning of the year.  He would like the residents to know that the sheriffs are working to find, arrest, and convict the offenders.  Since January, the sheriff’s department had enough evidence to get 4 search warrants issued.  So far, 16 people have been arrested in connection with the break-ins in the area.  If you have information that would help in their investigations, please call the Clermont County Sheriff’s Office.
  • Chief Stowell reported 35 fire calls and 116 EMS calls in June.  The trustees accepted 3 resignations and 1 part-time hire.  The department has been servicing the fire hydrants and cutting back weeds around them.
  • Cemetery news, Ed Stanley reports 10 funerals and 14 grave plots sold in June.  There is a new owner on Swope Road that is now cutting the old cemetery located back on his property. It was deeded to the township in 1850. The trustees agreed to compensate the owner for one cutting every 2 weeks, if needed.  The trustees gave an end date of 10/01/17 for residents to pick up shepherd hooks that have been removed from Tate Cemetery.
  • Road & Maintenance news, the County road crews will be replacing culvert pipes soon on Ohio Rd, Grant Rd, and the township will have a dump truck there to collect the old black top to use for new roads in the cemetery.  The State is replacing a culvert on St Rt 133 near Vic-Joy Rd.  The International truck that was purchased from the Village is working out good.  The old F650 will be sold online with a minimum bid of $28,000.

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.
