County roundup: New development coming to Suffield, plus news from Mogadore and Randolph


Village council passed legislation to accept the bid by Cementech for approximately $1.7 million to replace the infrastructure for Dick Street between Fenton Avenue and Pearl Avenue and to replace the infrastructure on Fenton Avenue between Mogadore Road and Curtis Street.

“They’ll be replacing the water lines and the sanitary sewer lines, and they’re going to curb the streets and replace the asphalt roads with concrete. We anticipate the job starting in September and finishing by next spring,” Mayor Mike Rick said. “Half of the cost will be paid for from a grant we received from the Ohio Public Works Commission.”


Council passed legislation to promote Gary Maag to street supervisor. Maag has been the interim supervisor since the end of November. He has been with the service department since 2015.


El Pastorcito, a new Mexican restaurant, is taking over for the restaurant that used to be at 94 S. Cleveland Ave., Mogaritaville. El Pastorcito should be open in the next week.


Wingfoot Development is putting in a 40-house development just south of town on state Route 43 right across from Rufener Hilltop Farms.

“They’ve already surveyed it,” township Chair Jeff Eldreth said. “They’re cutting trees down and are getting ready to get rolling with it.”


The township is going to pave Valley Crest Allotment, a short cul-de-sac road, hopefully within the next two months.


The Randolph Fire Department hosted its annual pancake breakfast fundraiser on Memorial Day morning, May 29.

“It was one of our most successful years yet,” said township Trustee Nick Reynolds, who is also a part-time volunteer captain for the fire department. “We served nearly 700 breakfasts.”

The breakfast, which included sausage, eggs cooked to order, coffee, orange juice, milk and water, was held inside the fire station, and a couple tents were set up outside in front for additional seating. Proceeds went to the Randolph Volunteer Fire Company, a nonprofit that is designed to support the operations and members of the fire department.

“It’s a really nice event,” Reynolds said, “because people can come and get the breakfast and the parade afterwards.”
