Founded in 1802, the community of Suffield Township, Ohio lies in the southwest corner of Portage County. We are uniquely situated in close proximity to Akron, Ohio to the northwest and Hartville, Ohio to the south. This gives our community a great mix of big city opportunities combined with rural charm.
With a population of 6383 as of the 2000 census, we are a close knit community - a community where neighbors look out for each other and wave when passing on the road. Township services include a highly trained Fire Department providing Fire and EMS protection to the township, as well as a hard working Road Department taking care of the roadways and other service related needs of the community.
We welcome you to our community. Please explore our web site to see more of what Suffield has to offer!
Our Firefighters Association is having a fund raiser. You should have received a letter about it. When the company (Colorcraft) did some cut and pasting in the creation of the letter, they show that another fire department would be receiving additional funds from any portraits that you may elect to purchase. Please rest assured that OUR firefighters association will be receiving all funds. The Firefighters Association is greatly appreciative of the generous support we have received in the early stages of this fund raiser. THANK YOU so much.!
A lot of residents have had questions about the cleanup of the old Teledyne Monarch site at the southern border of our township. Our zoning inspector, Mr. Adam Bey, is on top of this issue and it has now migrated up to involve the EPA. We know that it appears to be moving at a snail's pace, but things really are moving. Please be patient with us as we work to resolve this issue.
We are planning on having another township clean up day Saturday May 10th 8 to noon. We will take tires (up to 4 for free, then $1.00 per tire), batteries, computers, and scrap metal. This will take place at the township garage.
After a very rough winter, we are pleased with the overall condition of our roads. We will be continuing our chip and seal program this year. Details can be found on the Roads page.
