Local Official Receives Ohio Township Association Leadership Academy Diploma


The Ohio Township Association (OTA) is pleased to announce Erin Hartsock, Zoning Inspector and Asst. Administrator from Wayne Township in Warren County, as a recent graduate of the OTA Leadership Academy, an advanced local government training program.


The Ohio Township Association Leadership Academy (OTALA) was created in 2003 to provide education to elected officials, township staff, employees and appointed individuals. Through the joint efforts of the OTA, OSU Extension: Office of Community Development and Miami University’s Center for Public Management and Regional Affairs, the program offers courses designed to enhance the leadership and decision making skills of those involved in Ohio township government.


“All politics are local, but Township government is truly the most local form of government in the US. We all strive to serve our neighbors and communities to the best of our abilities. The OTALA program helps us all by encouraging an environment of continuous improvement and inclusion,” said Hartsock.


In order to complete OTALA, all participants had to attend the General Workshop, participate in six of ten elective courses and take part in the National Association of Towns and Townships (NATaT) Annual Conference, held each year in the spring in Washington, D.C. or the OTA Federal Day Workshop held at the OTA offices in Blacklick, Ohio. All requirements must be met within three years of beginning the program.


Ms. Hartsock joins the ranks with Mr. Pat Foley, Mr. Bradley Coffman and Mr. Gus Edwards as Wayne Township Officials who have graduated from the OTALA courses and continue to benefit from its educational opportunities.


The Ohio Township Association is a statewide organization dedicated to the promotion and preservation of township government in Ohio. The Association was founded on June 28, 1928, and is organized in 87 Ohio counties. The Association has more than 5,200 active members, made up of trustees and fiscal officers from  

 Ohio’s 1,308 townships and more than 4,000 associate members.

Wayne Township Road Department has updated its snow and ice removal practices just in time for winter.


In addition to a new F-550 plow truck, the Township has retrofitted its other vehicles to apply a liquid de-icing solution in addition to its standard salt and grit application. The liquid solution, “Beet-Heet”, is a derivative of the sugar beet. It is a natural product that is less toxic, less corrosive, and stays put better than salt alone.


An additional benefit of beet juice is its ability to effectively treat roadways in very cold conditions. Whereas salt is most effective in temperatures above 15-20 degrees F, beet juice lowers the freezing point of water to as low as -20 degrees F.  For instance, a study performed by the Missouri Department of Transportation found that at 30 degrees F, or just below freezing, one pound of salt alone is capable of melting about 46.3 pounds of ice. But at zero degrees, this same amount of salt will only melt about 3.7 pounds of ice.


The same MDOT study found that adding beet juice to road salt also significantly lowers the “bounce rate” of salt from about 30 percent to 5 percent. This means that the salt stays on the roads where it can do its job, rather than bounce off to the shoulder as vehicles drive over it. Therefore, far less salt is needed to cover an icy roadway or walkway.  Beet juice is also easier on vehicles, pavement, plants, trees, ground water and waterways than salt alone.


When driving in wintery conditions, please be mindful of ODOT’s Driving Tips:

ODOT urges motorists to drive to the condition of the road and use caution during winter weather.

Before you leave home, check road conditions and live web cams at www.ohgo.com.


While traveling in winter conditions, brake early and slowly, never slam on the brakes and give yourself plenty of room to stop. Be aware of what’s going on ahead of you. A large number of crashes are due to unsafe speeds and following too closely.


Give snowplows room to work - don’t crowd the plow. Be patient and if possible, don’t pass a plow, but if you must pass always take extreme caution and beware of the snow cloud. A snowplow operator’s field of vision is restricted. You may see them, but they don’t always see you. Keep your distance and watch for sudden stops.
