The Clermont County Engineers Office is responsible for the maintenance of the county roads.
The easiest way to tell which roads are the State and County roads is by the middle of the road paint stripes, the township roads do not have painted lines.

Mowing & Tree Removal
The road maintenance department mows both sides of township roads multiple times each year. The 38.62 miles of road times both sides is 77.24 miles of ditches. They also cut back invasive low hanging limbs to a minimum height of 13′ 6″.
Please be cautious when passing our tractors and crew when they are cutting as they may not see or hear you.
September 2017 Cemetery Tree Removal:
Township road culverts are another important job to keep the roads in operating condition. The “old” culvert pipes are made of metal that eventually will rust out along the bottom, where the water runs through and sits. The new replacement pipes are made of heavy HDPE corrugated plastic that will hold up to the continuous wet environment as well as stand up to the weight of dirt, road, and vehicles.

Every year, the Trustees review the condition of the Township roads to decide what roads will need re-paving in the summer.

Who is Responsible for Clearing my Driveway Culvert and Ditch Line?
It is the responsibility of the residents to ensure that their driveway culverts and ditch lines are free of debris that may cause blockages. Backed up driveway culvert tiles, especially those located along township roads, can become very hazardous to motorists. When these culvert tiles become blocked with debris, they create road flooding or the pooling of water on the roadway surface. This, in turn, can lead to cars hydroplaning, causing injury and loss of property. Please protect yourself and others by clearing your culverts and ditch lines.
Snow & Ice Removal
Snow removal and salting the roads in the freezing temperatures is of top importance to the safety of the residents. We stay on top of the weather forecasts and once the call is made by Ed, the crews are out plowing within 15 to 30 minutes. Every effort will be made to be sure that all Township roads are plowed of snow and ice in a timely fashion using all resources of the Township.
Annual Township Clean Up Weekend
Every year, in April, the residents of Tate are able to unload their accumulated junk into dumpsters. Tate Township and Village of Bethel RESIDENTS ONLY can bring their unwanted items to the Tate Maintenance building at 2655 Spring Street. The exact dates and times will be announced in March. For email notification of the annual clean-up as well as other Tate Township events, sign up to follow the news posts.
We do NOT accept yard waste, paint, or any other hazardous materials. Tires are accepted for a small fee. Proof of Tate Township residency will be required.
