The Suffield Township Board of Trustees met on Tuesday March 26th at 7:00 AM before a crowd of five citizens.  Most the business discussed was mundane and of the routine nature.  Chairman Jeff Eldreth announced that the annual Township Clean-Up Day will be on Saturday April 20th from 8:00 AM until 12:00 AM.  It will be held at the township Road Department garage, which is on State Route 43 to the rear of the historic Town Hall.  The Portage County Solid Waste Management District has provided the township with rules on what will be accepted.  These rules are:

1.  A strict limit of 10 tires per vehicle will be accepted at the collection event.

2.  Passenger tires with rims will be accepted.

3.  Tractor tires, with rims, will be accepted.

4.  Cut (sheared) tires will NOT be accepted.

5.  Tires that are muddy of filled with dirt will NOT be accepted.

6.  Semi tires will NOT be accepted.

7.  We CANNOT accept heavy equipment tires or treads from mini excavators.

8.  We CANNOT accept chunks of rubber.

9.  We CANNOT accept inner tubes.

10. Tires will NOT be accepted from commercial businesses.

11. Batteries will be accepted.

12. Electronics will be accepted, however, NO TV's WILL BE ACCEPTED.

Fiscal Officer Lori Calcei reported that NOPEC has okayed two grants to Suffield Township for 2019.  One was for just shy of $19,000.  NOPEC has agreed that using this money to pay towards the new electronic sign would be appropriate.  The other grant for $1,500 is to be used for a community based event.  There is also $400 worth of leftover NOPEC grant money from 2018 that the township can use.  The trustees discussed some options on this.  Tom Calcei said that the Suffield League has decided not to have the annual Suffield Music Festival in 2019, but instead is considering a "community picnic" at Wingfoot Lake State Park.  This grant money could be used for that event.  Jeff Eldreth talked about a Christmas decorations competition in which residents would nominate and vote on the best decorated house.  A small portion of the NOPEC grant could money be used as prize money.  No decision on spending this grant money was made.

The new electronic sign is up and running.  Community based organizations are encouraged to advertise their events on BOTH the Suffield Township website and on the electronic sign.  Call Jeff Childers at 330-819-8905 to provide website information and call Shannon Eldreth at 330-807-0384 to provide information for the electronic sign.

Jeff Eldreth reported that the annual street sweeping has been completed.  Buckeye Sweeping was the contractor this year.  There was some discussion on the proposed new salt barn.  Jeff Eldreth hoped that the new salt barn would be about 54' by 40' and would hold about 900 tons of material.  Since that amount of salt is about twice the amount used annually, Eldreth said that he wanted a shed large enough to shelter both the salt and grit that the township uses.  Keeping the grit out of the weather will prevent it from freezing into chunks that won't go through the spreader apparatus.

The trustees next meet on Tuesday April 9th at 7:00 AM (this time is correct, meeting time was changed).  The Zoning Commission meets on Wednesday April 10th at 7:00 PM.  No Board of Zoning Appeals hearings are scheduled.

License Plate Renewals

When buying new license plates, or renewing them, be sure the registrar at the Bureau of Motor Vehicles knows that you live in Suffield Township.  If you simply state your address as Mogadore, the road tax funds, which should go to Suffield Township, will go to Mogadore Village, due to your zip code.  Keep your tax money in the township!

Wingfoot Lake State Park

Wingfoot Lake State Park is Suffield's only park.   It was opened by the Ohio State Parks & Recreation Department in 2009.  Goodyear had operated the park since the 1960's as a private playground for its employees and for corporate retreats.  As the company footprint grew smaller in the Akron area Goodyear decided to close the park in 2006.  To learn more about the park, such as rental of the facilities, visit the park's website:  http://parks.ohiodnr.gov/wingfootlake
