The Suffield Township Board of Trustees met on Tuesday April 8th and discussed a myriad of subjects, most could be thought of as routine business matters.  

Fire Chief Bob Rasnick was given the opportunity to present the April Fire Department report.  He noted that the firefighters responded to 44 calls in April, and they are 247 calls ahead of last year's pace.  He asked that former fireman Kyle Knapp be reinstated for the summer, to which the trustees agreed.  Rasnick also said that he and Captain Matt Moulton attended the "Fire Department Instructions Conference" in Indianapolis, Indiana, and that they came home with lots of good information and handouts.  He said it was a very worthwhile adventure for Moulton and himself.

Card Bingo FlyerTrustee Jeff Eldreth reported that the Road Department is working on crack sealing.  He asked the trustees to approve spending another $10,000 for crack seal materials.  The motion was approved.  Eldreth also asked that the township purchase 400 tons of salt.  Last yerar the price was $34.00 per ton, using the ODOT Winter Bid program.  This will save the township a ton of money (pun intended).  Eldreth also asked that the trustees approve spending $3,500 to hire flagers from  Area Wide Patrol for some upcoming crack sealing.  This motion passed.  He also accepted the bids for road materials.  Lastly, Eldreth said that the water problem along Palm Road, very near to the Mogadore Reservoir, wasn't solved by trapping a couple of beavers.  A more permanent solution, which likely includes a new cross-road culvert may be necessary.  No immediate decision was made on this issue.

Trustee Tom Calcei said that he had received a communication from the Portage County Solid Waste District in which Director Bill Steiner reported that 15.9% of the material that the recycle trucks pick up is not recyclable.  The letter received was vague enough so that this is no way to know what areas these unacceptable materials are coming from.  Some discussion was had on this important matter.  Calcei asked that the township website re-post information on what is acceptable and what is not.

Trustee Jared Phillip said that First Energy has finally given the township a cost for the proposed street light at Saxe Road and Congress Lake Road.  Installing the light at a cost of $1,531.25 was approved by the trustees.  Phillip will make arrangements to have the light installed.  It was noted that the cost to maintain the light will be $4.22 per month.  Fiscal Officer Lori Calcei said that Suffield pays about $982 per month for lighting the township.

Trustee Jeff Eldreth said that the "Card Bingo" that was held on Sunday April 29th was very successful.  This program will continue each Sunday evening from 6:00 PM until 8:30 PM.  The event is held in the Suffield Community Room, 1256 Waterloo Road.  All are welcome.

The Board of Trustees next meet on Tuesday May 22, at 7:00 AM.  The Zoning Commission meets on Wednesday May 9th at 7:00 PM.  Both meetings are in the Suffield Community Room, 1256 Waterloo Road.  The annual Suffield League Memorial Day Parade is Monday May 28th at 2:00 PM.  Preceding the parade at 1:00 PM will be a memorial service in front of the historic Town Hall.  This year's Grand Marshal will be Kyle Kreiner.

BZA Grants Variance To Allow Accessory Building

The Suffield Township Board of Zoning Appeals met on July 17th and voted 5-0 to allow Craig & Lisa Dunlap to build an accessory building on their lot at 378 Weakland Road.  They will be required to obtain a building permit for the primary residence before starting construction on the accessory building.  This has been a contentious issue in the township for many years.  Andy Grow made the motion to allow the accessory building, which was then seconded by Leo Weakland.

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
