June 19, 2011

Family legacy and family tradition resonate strongly with brothers Dale and Howard Lepovetsky, third-generation owners of Industrial Steel and Pipe Supply Company in St. Marys. The company, which sells various types of steel, plastics, piping and other products for commercial and retail use, is proudly celebrating its 75th year.

Gustafson had also voted for himself at that time, providing the other necessary vote to allow him to fill the vacancy.

At a Jay Township Supervisors meeting earlier this year, remarks had been made that it was not appropriate for the township's three supervisors to hold a weekly work schedule meeting during the working hours of supervisor Murray Lilley, who also works for the township. The supervisors began holding the meetings after eliminating the township's roadmaster position, which Lilley had previously held. Lilley was then subsequently hired to fill a maintenance position with the township, with the supervisors as a group determining employees' work schedules.
