The Suffield Township Board of Trustees met on Tuesday August 11th.  For the first time in a long time, residents were allowed to be personally attend, provided they adhered to the socially distancing guidelines as set forward by the State of Ohio.  This wasn't too much of a problem as only five people attended.

The trustees voted 2-0 (trustee Tom Calcei was absent) to expend $21,000 to Liberty Concrete and $36,000 to General Concrete Construction Company in order to get the new salt barn construction underway.  Chairman Jeff Eldreth reminded everyone that the census for this year was been extended to September 30th, so if you haven't already completed your census form, you still have plenty of time.  The more people that claim Suffield Township as their home, the more money that the township stands to collect, for things like the Local Government Funds apportionment, etc.

It was reported that the Fire Department responded to 65 calls for service in July.  Eldreth said that the "chip & seal" program by the Road Department has been completed for this year, and that the Road Department has mowed along the township roads three times so far, and hope to mow one more time this year.  The trustees voted to pay JD Striping $9,660 for road striping.    From the audience Bryon Wine complimented the Road Department for doing an especially good job of mowing this year.  Nothing seems to be happening with Zoning, except that Adam Bey issued a permit for a new house to be built on Martin Road.  Permits were also issued for one accessory building and one very large deck.  A complaint of junk vehicles at 1476 Trares Road was received and trustee Jared Philip said he'd look into it.

The trustees next meet on Tuesday August 25th at 7:00 AM.  The Zoning Commission meets on Wednesday August 12th at 7:00 PM.  There are no Board of Zoning Appeals hearing in the works at his time.  Said meetings will be open to the public and are held at the Suffield Community Room at 1256 Waterloo Road.
