The Suffield Township Board of Trustees met on Tuesday January 8th before a crowd of ten people.  Newly anointed Chairman of the Board Jeff Eldreth presided over a meeting that was primarily routine in nature.  Some housekeeping matters, literally and figuratively, were worked out as to the responsibilities of the Fire Department and the Township Facilities Administrator on who would keep the Community Room spiffy and clean.  After some discussion, it was determined that this would be a collaborative endeavor and that communication between the various parties would be the key issue. 

Fire Chief Bob Rasnick said that the fire guys handled 59 calls for service in December and a total of 820 for the year 2018, which is an all-time high.  He also congratulated T.J. Fox and Ben Feeman for their hard work in earning their certification in the State of Ohio Paramedics program.  They also passed their tests and are now on the National Registry.  The Chief did some followup research and reported that in 2018 the Fire Department responded to nine calls for overdoses.  He did not have the exact data, but said that not all these persons were transported to the hospital.  Jeff Eldreth added that the cost of the Narcan (naloxone hydrochloride nasal spray) kits used in these overdoses is not paid by the township or the Fire Department, but from the various hospitals.

Jared Phillip said that the new electronic sign is on schedule to be put up and into service in about two weeks.  Some minor electrical wiring needs to be replaced prior to installation.  He also said that the man along Mishler Road known as the "Can Man" has cleaned up his collection of recyclable cans.  Adam Bey, zoning inspector, said that there is a Board of Zoning Appeals hearing set for Tuesday January 22nd at 8:00 PM.  Bey also said that the power point presentation of the Zoning Commission's new Twenty Year Plan is ready for the trustee's and public view.  The trustees decided to make this presentation into a special meeting to be held on Tuesday February 12th at 6:00 PM. 

The annual discussion of water levels in and around Wingfoot Lake is already beginning.  Jeff Eldreth said that the township is working with the Portage County Engineer's Office to eliminate some beaver dams that are partially to blame for high water levels.  Jared Phillip said he is working, also with the Engineer's Office, to get a marker placed in Wingfoot Lake to show the actual water level and how it relates to the standard level establish for that body of water.  Eldreth said that the Road Department paved over the new culvert on the far-north end of Palm Road.

The trustees next meet on Tuesday January 22nd at 7:00 AM.  The Zoning Commission meets on Wednesday January 9th at 7:00 PM.  The Board of Zoning Appeals has a hearing set for Tuesday January 22nd at 8:00 PM.  All these meetings are in the Suffield Community Room at 1256 Waterloo Road.  The trustees will host a special meeting to review the new Twenty Year Plan on Tuesday February 12th at 6:00 PM.

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
