Suffield Township Board of Trustees meetings are some of the better attended meetings in the county.  A typical crowd is usually ten to twelve residents.  Tonight the number swelled to fifteen as the trustees held their monthly "bill paying meeting".  Of course they signed checks to pay bills, but they also discussed several items of concern.  

Trustee Tom Calcei spoke on the Fire Department's Open House held this past Sunday, saying it was a rousing success with about 500 attendees and great weather.  He also mentioned that the ambulance that was scheduled for warranty repainting had to be rescheduled and will not be done for several more weeks, but in the meantime the ambulance is still here in the township and available for calls.  Calcei also spoke about the Portage County Budget Commission's meetings on finding a fair and equitable manner to distribute "Local Government Funds" to all the political subdivisions.  Calcei motioned, and trustee Jeff Eldreth seconded, a resolution asking the county budget commission accept the township's plan for distributing the local government funds.  The resolution passed 3-0.

Jeff Eldreth wanted to remind everyone that the township LEAF DUMP is now open at 558 Etter Road.  He also wanted to remind everyone that no one should go there after sundown.  There is also caution tape placed on the Etter Road property which is posted to show an area where leaves should not be dumped.  Eldreth also said he would have the Road Department look into a complaint of a view obstruction on Martin Road at Randolph Road.

Two residents who live on Martin Road at Garner Drive attended the meeting to complain about the excessive amount of light the the streetlight in front of their home casts.  David Vartenuk said he has already been in contact with Dana Heffner at First Energy and they have a received a shield to reduce the amount of light and hope to install it sometime this or next week.   

Trustee Chairman David Vartenuk called upon Adam Bey to report on zoning issues.  There were no new problems, but the old ones were being worked on.  Some progress is being made on the derelict property on Carriage House Lane, the old Copeland's Landing property is a little better, but still a mess, the lawns at the corner of Waterloo Road and Inglewood Drive and the property at 81 Bolender Road still need mowed.  Nothing new to be reported on the cleanup of the old Monarch-Teledyne property. 

The trustees meet again on Tuesday October 24th at 7:00 AM.  The Zoning Commission meets on Wednesday October 11th at 7:00 PM, and the Board of Zoning Appeals has two hearings coming up, but no dates have been set for either.

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 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
