On Tuesday May 11th the Suffield Township Board of Trustees met before a crowd of eight residents.  Chief Bob Rasnick gave his Fire Department report for April.  He said that the firefighters and EMS personnel responded to 63 calls for service.  He also said that Matt Leidel has resigned from the Fire Department due to an unbelievable workload at his full-time job.  The trustees voted to accept the resignation.  Chief Rasnick said the heart monitors that the department now has have gone past their useful life and he asked that the trustees allow him to buy new ones.  They agreed to spend $36,730 for two new state-of-the-art heart monitors.  They also decided that buying an extended service contract was in the township's best interests.  The service contract for both heart monitors will cost the township $3,200 per year, and increase of only $140 per year.

Major Larry Limbert came to the meeting to discuss any matters that the trustees or audience might have on policing issues within Suffield Township.  He said that in the first four months of this year the Sheriff's Office has responded to 411 calls for service.  Limbert said that the Sheriff's Office is looking to hire more road deputies and jail personnel, but there has been few qualified candidates coming forth.  

Trustee Jared Phillip mentioned that "robocalls" have become a major problem and the source of many complaints.  He said that someone receiving these unwanted calls can dial 1-888-382-1222 and have their phone placed on the "Do Not Call Registry".  When calling this number, you must be calling from the phone number that is receiving the unwanted calls.  For more information, go to the internet at www.ftc.gov.     

Trustee Jeff Eldreth said that he's made great progress in setting up a "Car Show" for Sunday June 13.  There will be food vendors, a deejay and. of course, cars.  The event will be held in the parking lot between the Historic Town Hall and Suffield Community Center.  It is scheduled to begin at 12:00 noon and end around 6:00 PM.  A flyer with more information will out in the next week or so.

The trustees meet again on Tuesday May 25th at 7:00 AM.  The Zoning Commission meets on Wednesday May 12th at 7:00 PM, and the Board of Zoning Appeals meets on Tuesday May 18th at 7:00 PM.  All meetings are in the Suffield Community Room at 1256 Waterloo Road.

BZA Okays Variances At Pony Express And 1701 Randolph Road

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.
