Commissioners sign Michael Beasecker Day proclamation

GREENVILLE— The Darke County Board of Commissioners met on Wednesday afternoon to sign the Michael Beasecker Day proclamation. Commissioners Matt Aultman, Mike Stegall and Larry Holmes were all present.

The board proclaimed Dec. 31, 2021 to be Michael Beasecker Day in Darke County, Ohio in celebration of the soon-to-be former Board of Developmental Disabilities Superintendent’s impending retirement. Beasecker will retire at the end of this year after working almost 33 years in Darke County government and 26 years with the Board of Developmental Disabilities.

The board awarded Beasecker the proclamation, and praised him for his decades of service to the county.

“You are, and have been one of the best directors I’ve ever seen,” Commissioner Stegall said. “You’re very consciences. You do a very great job. I’m really going to miss you and I’m sure everyone else will too. Congratulations on your retirement and have a great one.”

Beasecker thanked everyone in attendance for their well wishes.

“It’s been great working in Darke County government,” he said. “Thirty-two and a half years that I’ll be retiring with. Twenty six of those with the board of developmental disabilities so it’s been a privilege to work with the families and the people we support. My family has been very supportive of me over the years, and probably put up with a lot. I appreciate my family.”

The Darke County Board of Commissioners hold regular session every Monday and Wednesday at 1:30 p.m. at 520 South Broadway, Greenville, Ohio 45331. For more information contact the commissioner’s office at 937-547-7370.
