The Suffield Township Board of Trustees met on Thursday June 23rd before a crowd of just two people.  Fire Chief Robert Rasnick requested that the trustees hire Hayden Dupratt as a new firefighter.  The trustees agreed and Dupratt was hired and will serve a one year probationary period.  The Fire Department building also suffered some extensive damage to the building's computer and communication systems due to a lightning strike.  The trustees did not make a decision on whether to use insurance funds for repairs or to pay the damages with township funds.  More discussion is needed on this matter.  There was a lengthy discussion of sick time accrual for firefighters, and the upcoming levies for the November General Election ballot were discussed.  A final decision on placement of the levies is set for the next trustee meeting on July 12th.  

The trustees next meet on Tuesday July 12th at 7:00 AM.  The Zoning Commission meets on Wednesday July 13th at 7:00 PM.  Both meetings are at the Suffield Community Room at 1256 Waterloo Road.  The public is very welcome to attend.

BZA Okays Variances At Pony Express And 1701 Randolph Road

The Suffield Township Board of Zoning Appeals passed by a 5-0 vote a conditional use permit to allow Mark Davis the ability to use his property at 1395 State Route 43 as a U-Haul business.  Some limitations were attached to the agreement.

Scott Stayer requested a variance to allow use of 60 foot access strips on the property at 1701 Randolph Road.  This would allow the back portion of the 71 acre property to be divided into lots.  The access strips would keep these lots from being "land locked".  The variance was passed 3-2 after a number of neighbors had some objections.

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
