In this challenging time Pleasant Township Trustees have opted to hold virtual meetings in lieu of regular public meetings. To increase participation of the community, the township has set up a WebX meeting portal to conduct these meetings. This portal will allow increased participation of the audience that is watching/attending these meetings.
For the public – A link will be posted to each meeting on all social media accounts, as well as the township web page, at least 24 hours prior to the meeting date and time. Interested parties can participate in the meeting in one of two ways. First, users can access the meeting on a computer or other device by clicking the link. This will take you to the participant section. From there, you must “register” by clicking the register button. Once you register by entering your email, you will be sent another link that will allow you to attend & participate in the meeting. If you prefer not to, or are unable to, click the link, you can call in to the phone number that is listed, then enter the “meeting ID number” that is posted as well. This will allow you to listen to and participate in the meeting as it happens. The host of the meeting will be able to control the microphones, and we will unmute people as needed. Users on the computer will be able to “raise your hand” to be acknowledged, or ask questions via chat. Those using a phone may have more limited options.
Please understand that this is a new system for the township, and while we are going to be running a few trial meetings over the next several days, we expect some issues to happen, especially with the first few meetings, however we feel that this is a better option for our residents and those interested parties who may have business with the township. This option is also more secure that the popular Zoom Meeting, which has inherent security risks associated with it.
All meeting information will be posted under the date of the meeting when it is available.

Congratulations Lt. David Moore, OFE Graduate
On Friday June 3, 2020 Fire Department Lieutenant David Moore graduated from the Ohio Fire Chiefs Association's Ohio Fire Executive Program (OFE) Class #18.
The OFE program is a 2.5 year program that prepares fire department officers for the challenges faced in today's ever changing environment. The program consists of 5 week long in person sessions where students learn from some of the nations foremost experts on various topics including community leadership, conflict management, team building, policy development and strategic planning. They also complete an organizational evaluation, as well as personal evaluations.
In addition to the in person sessions, students complete approximately 400 hours of out of class coursework that includes a number of major written papers, presentations, and an applied research project.
Lt. Moore is the first member of the PTFD to complete this program, and only the 2nd graduate currently working for the department. Chief Taylor is a previous graduate of the OFE class #12 in 2014, prior to his being appointed fire chief.
