Representing the Ohio Township Association were Matt DeTemple, executive director; Timothy Lynch, secretary-treasurer (Liberty Twp.); Ron E. Miller, board of directors (Crawford Co.); Larry Johns, past president (Moulton Twp.); and Dallas Twp. Trustee Milton D. Underwood. Local trustee Ed Huff Jr., serves on OTA board of directors.
Following entertainment by Harmony, DeTemple updated the group on legislative matters concerning township trustees. He was “happy to report” that an amendment raising allowable truck rates has been taken out of the state budget, due in part because of concern and calls form township trustees. Other state matters the OTA is keeping an eye on include the question of making up revenue for lowered taxes, bonds backed by gas tax money, whether or not economic development can be discussed in executive session and a concrete definition of “indigent” for burial purposes.
