Robert Alt was elected to serve as a Trustee beginning in 2020. He has lived on the same farm in Liberty Township his entire life. He lives next door to the house he grew up in with his wife, Amanda, of 16 years along with their children, Case, Paisely, Baylin and Jed. Robert is a self-employed 7th generation farmer along with his father, Dan, with a focus on corn, soybeans, wheat and hay and now a cattle operation with his son, Case. He and his wife, along with two employees, also run a drainage business in their slow time.
Robert is a 2002 Liberty Union High School graduate. He has successfully operated his business since 1999. While the size has changed, he has been diligent to keep the small town face-to-face handshake style morals in place today that he was taught many years ago, as he operates in both his business and personal life.
He has many goals for the Township including:
Keeping the balance sheet strong with smart expenditures that prevent the Township from needing to ask for levies.
Working to keep the equipment to high maintenance standards to ensure it is ready to go at a moment's notice.
Looking into alternative, reasonable ways to improve our chip sealing practices to keep the stone on the road and the dust under control.
Making sure residents feel there are open and transparent lines of communication in all departments of the Township.
Properly handling past issues in the Township, presently making the best decisions for the Township as a whole, and preparing the Township for many generations to come.
Robert is very thankful to the residents of Liberty Township for giving him the opportunity to serve them and is honored and excited to be in this role.
