APA Roger Gates Heralds Landmark Decisions for Butler County
April 01, 2014

Yesterday, March 31, 2014, heralded two landmark agreements for the citizens of Butler County spearheaded for the county by the outstanding legal work of Assistant Prosecutor Roger Gates who heads up the Civil Division of the office of Butler County Prosecuting Attorney. The first agreement, the resolution of major tax issues with West Chester Hospital and the Lakota School District brings to an end litigation that drained the resources of all parties and now ends with a resolution fair to all sides that will last well into the next decade.

The second agreement is a new agreement reached by the County Commissioners and the City of Hamilton, also guided by the skilled legal hands of Mr. Gates that will provide fairness to all involved and again will give fairness, stability and certainty to the agreement on water rates between the county and city for many years ahead. These are accomplishments worthy of special note and are shining examples of the outstanding civil work done by the Office of Prosecuting Attorney.
