On Tuesday October 12 the Suffield Township Board of Trustees met to discuss an assortment of issues.  Fire Chief Bob Rasnick reported that the Fire Department responded to, what he believes, was a record number of calls for a month's service.  Ninety-seven times the firemen went on calls.  He reported that Firefighters Kevin Lessman and Kris Hendershot resigned from the department.  No one has been chosen to take their places on the roster.  The Chief was also very pleased with the Open House on October 10th and the number of people that turned out to participate.  Breast Cancer Awareness Month tee shirts are on sale at the Fire Department for $20.00 each.  All proceeds from the sale of shirts will be given to families of breast cancer victims. 

A lengthy discussion on a Christmas Lighting contest was had with no final decision of whether to join a competition similar to last year's or join with other communities, to include, but not limited to: the City of Stow and the City of Tallmadge.  A new antiques store is going to open at the corner of Waterloo Road and State Route 43 in the building that formerly housed a used car lot and a video store before that.  No date was given for the grand opening.   The trustees signed an agreement with the county commissioners to renew their contact for solid waste management, namely curbside recycling.  The new short-term agreement calls for bi-weekly pickups and a charge to your property taxes in the amount of $5.50 per month.  The new agreement extends the contract from January 1, 2022 through June 30, 2023.

The Suffield League and the Wingfoot Lake Park are working together to present a Fall Festival at the park on Friday October 29th from 5:00 PM till 9:00 PM.  There will be live music, hayrides, a Trunk or Treat, a Spooky Haunted Trail and S'mores.  For more information, call the park office at 628-4720.  Board chairman Jeff Eldreth suggested that the trustees organize a night at the movies.  This would be held indoors at the historic Town Hall.  More on this later. 

The trustees meet next on Tuesday October 28th at 7:00 AM.   The Zoning Commission meets on Wednesday October 13th at 7:00 PM and the Board of Zoning Appeals meets on Tuesday October 19th at 8:00 PM.  Best wishes to Zoning Commission chairman John Yeargin and his wife Judy on their recent illnesses.
