Tate Township Meeting Summary

Summary of the February meeting of the Tate Township Trustees that was held 2/10/2018.,

  • A representative from Rumpke  would still like to offer the unified pricing plan to the township residents, which was presented at the last meeting.  The trustees would not need to take action because there is no contract.    Regardless of the trustee’s decision, any resident that uses Rumpke now and is over age 65 can contact Rumpke to receive a $2 discount on their bill each month.
  • Former trustee Frank Wilson was in attendance and wanted to say that all the employees of the township are doing a great job.  Also in attendance, newly elected school board member Bill Shula expressed his sincere thanks to the BTFD, EMS, and Bethel Police for reacting so quickly when he had an emergency and calling the UC air care, which he credits for saving his life. We are lucky to have skilled and quick thinking employees that can handle life or death situations so well.
  • Zoning- George Eckert had 4 new permits in January.  He had no new news to report.
  • Cemetery- Ed Stanley reported 10 funerals in January and 7 (in township) graves were sold.

I was elected as Tate Township Trustee in 1994 to serve a two year unexpired term.  I was then defeated and then re-elected. I have held that position ever since.  During the years I have observed Tate Township changing. I have done my best to keep ahead of the changes to better serve the residents of the township.  I am a strong supported of our Fire Department, which is second to none.

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.
