The Suffield Township Board of Trustees met before five citizens on Tuesday September 24th at 7:00 AM.  Trustee chairman Jeff Eldreth asked for a purchase order to pay for road striping.  The PO was approved in the amount of $8,320 to J.D. Striping.  He also asked for PO for $95,600.34 to pay Henry Luli Construction for the recent chip and seal program.  All three trustees voted to expend this money.  Trustee Jared Phillip said he had had an inquiry into the property at 278 Waterloo Road.  This is a property on which the township had demolished a delinquent house several years ago.  All agreed that the township has no further legal interest in the property and the person wanting to purchase it needs to contact the property owner, who appears to be current in their property taxes.  

Zoning inspector Adam Bey told the trustees that the Zoning Commission has revised the allowable square footage for accessory buildings and will be holding the necessary hearings on the matter.  The Commission wants to hold off on printing the new Zoning Resolution books until this new matter can be included in the book.  According to Bey, requests for variances on accessory building sizes is the most prevalent matter coming before the Board of Zoning Appeals in the past year.  It should be noted that these suggested changes will not become effective until the entire hearing process is completed.  Due to time requirements in each step of the procedure, the soonest the changes will become effective is probably January or February of 2020.

Trustee Jeff Eldreth said that the Fire Department will hold its annual Open House on Sunday October 13th from 11:00 AM until 3:00 PM.  The trustees also talked briefly about the Christmas lighting for the Town Hall.  Trustee Tom Calcei said that the cost of lighting has gone up.  The trustees postponed any further discussion until other lighting contractors could be approached.

The trustees next meet on Tuesday October 8th at 7:00 PM.  The Zoning Commission meets on Wednesday October 9th at 7:00 PM.  A public hearing on zoning resolution changes will start the meeting, followed by regular zoning business.  There are no Board of Zoning Appeals hearings scheduled.  Both meetings are in the Suffield Community Room at 1256 Waterloo Road.  All are welcome to attend.

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
