The Suffield Township Board of Trustees met on Tuesday September 25th to conduct business before a crowd of eight interested parties.  Noteworthy was the expenditure of $18,750 to put a new dimensional shingle roof on the Road Scott McBroom photoDepartment garage.  The trustees discussed at length on whether to go with a shingled roof or a metal roof.  Road Department superintendent Scott McBroom may have tipped the scales when he suggested the shingled roof.  Another consideration was the cost.  The shingles were about $4,000 less.  The trustees voted to have Steve Bable, a local contractor, do the job. Jeff Eldreth asked that the project be completed within 45 days.  Perhaps the best news is that Fiscal Officer Lori Calcei stated she had been in contact with Charles Ramer of NOPEC, and this roofing replacement will qualify as an allowed project for a $19,630 grant that the township hoped to get from NOPEC.  The trustees voted to submit the grant application.  They also agreed to submit a grant application in order to get $1,500 from NOPEC for community events.  This smaller grant will go toward Fire Department Open House expenses.

Scott McBroom said the Road Department has been busy with a number of small projects.  The road striping has been completed, so the trustees voted to pay JD Striping & Services of Ravenna $15,838 for their services.  Fire Chief Robert Rasnick was unavailable, but he sent in his stead Fire Safety Inspector Dean Chinrock to answer questions, of which there were none.  The crowd was reminded that the Fire Department Open House is on Sunday October 7th from 11:00 AM until 3:00 PM.  The Suffield Township Historical will have the museum open during those hours.  For those unfamiliar with the museum's location, it is in the township's original Fire Department building, directly behind the historic Town Hall.  The Portage County Health Department will also be on hand to administer flu shots.

Jeff Eldreth said that the house at 1560 Carriage House Way has come a long way since all the neighborhood complaints over the past ten years, or so.  He mentioned that the new owners have recently replaced the roof and are forging ahead with a complete restoration.  Tom Calcei motioned that the trustees hire Andrew J. Crano of Alliance to be a new firefighter.  He will have to serve a one year probationary period.

The Hills Pond or Pretty Glen Dam is still on the minds of the neighbors, the trustees and the county administration.  Tony Badalamenti, who is running for county commissioner this fall, told Tom Calcei that he has plans to save the dam.  He plans to attend the trustee meeting on Tuesday October 11th to present his ideas.  Calcei said that he hopes those who live in Spring Valley Estates will take the time to attend this meeting.

The next trustee meeting is on Tuesday October 11th at 8:00 PM.  The Zoning Commission meets on Wednesday October 12th at 7:00 PM and the Board of Zoning Appeals has a hearing set for Tuesday October 2nd at 8:00 PM.  All meetings are at the Suffield Community Room at 1256 Waterloo Road and all meetings are open to the public.

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
