The Suffield Township Board of Trustees met on Tuesday February 8th before a small crowd of eight people.  Most of the meeting was consumed with minor routine business.  Chief Bob Rasnick said the Fire Department responded to 59 calls for service and the staff participated in five continuing education classes.  He asked the trustees to hire two new firefighters.  They are Kari Frank and Josh Stamper.  Both have served their one-year probationary period and are ready to go.  The trustees voted to hire them.  Kasey Beaver, a full-time firefighter and paramedic resigned her position and asked to be kept on as a part-timer.  The trustees also accepted this move.  On an important fire issue, Chief Rasnick said that he has applied for  three FEMA grants, which total $1,183,189.  These grants are for replacing a 28 year old fire/rescue truck, 29 year old hydraulic rescue tools, and to hire three more full time firefighter/paramedics.  The township portion of the expense would be $20,401.  Mr Eldreth asked about timing and was told that the Chief hopes to get grant approvals around the first of June 2022.  Build out of the truck could take as long as two years.

Fourth grade resident Taylor Lautzenhiser asked the trustees for permission to do a community project.  Her plan is to refurbish the "Welcome To Suffield" sign on Waterloo Road near Portage Line Road.  Ms Lautzenhiser is asking for donations from the community to fund the project, which should included flowers, shrubs and some painting and the repair to the existing sign.  If you have questions about the project or would like to make a donation, call Jessica Lautzenhiser at 330-858-9317.

The trustees also voted to accept the permanent appropriation of funds from the Portage County Auditor's Office for the year 2022 in the amount of $3,266,748.

The trustees meet next on Tuesday February 22nd at 7:00 AM.  The Zoning Commission meets on Wednesday February 9th at 7:00 PM.  The Board of Zoning Appeals meets for a hearing on Tuesday February 15th at 8:00 PM.  All meetings are open to the public and are held in the Suffield Community Room at 1256 Waterloo Road.
