The regular Suffield Township Board of Trustees meeting normally held on the second Tuesday of the month caused some conflict in schedules, so it was changed to Monday April 10th at 8:00 PM.  Whether it was the change of days or just too nice a Spring evening to spend on township business, a much smaller than usual crowd of six persons showed up to watch the trustees conduct business.  Trustee Tom Calcei reported that all was well at the Fire Department.  He said that some new security cameras had been placed around the exterior of the Fire House.  Some talk was had on putting more cameras up in order to record the exterior of the Town Hall, the Road Department complex and the Administration Building.  No decision was reached on this.  Calcei also said that he talked with Portage County Solid Waste Management director William Steiner and had learned that for the first three months of this year the tonnage of recyclables received from Suffield residents was 9.2 tons in January (which was comprised of one week of pickups), 39.32 tons in February and 29.47 ton in March.  The rate of users was consist with 53% of the residents using recycle pickup in February and 51% in March.  

Trustee Jeff Eldreth reported that a new culvert had been installed on Idlewood Drive.  He also said that 4.3 miles of roads will be repaired this summer.  Those roads are:  Trares Road, from Congress Lake Road to Conley Road, all of May Road, all of Kehner Road, and Swartz Road from Griggy Road to the East township line.  Eldreth wants to look into a partial rebuild of Snake Hill (Trares Road east of Congress Lake Road).  The trustees voted to put in a bid with the Ohio Department of Transportation to buy up to 400 tons of salt next winter.  

After lengthy discussion, the trustees voted 2-1 to award a mowing contract to Silver Star Landscaping.  The contract specifies the contractor may mow, as needed, up to thirty times per year.  The contractor will mow the grass in the township's three cemeteries, around the Town Hall, Road Department complex and the Administration Building.

The Suffield Township Board of Trustees meet again on Tuesday April 25th at 8:00 PM.  The Zoning Commission meets Wednesday April 12th at 7:00 PM.  There are no Board of Zoning Appeals hearings scheduled.

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:
