NEW†† Lorain County Wireless Notification System


Lorain County recently implemented a wireless emergency notification system (WENS), which is sometimes referred to as a reverse 911.With this, the county, or any political subdivision (City, Township, etc.) can issue warnings or emergency information, such as weather alerts, boil alerts, and so forth.It should prove to be a useful tool that can disseminate information to a target group very quickly.


The system can contact you via telephone, cell phone, (Voice or text), or email, whichever you choose.


If you would like to be included, and we hope that you will, please click on the link below and provide the information on the registration sheet.



Your Penfield Township Officials



P.S. Feel free to respond with any questions that you may have.




Penfield is part of K.E.Y.


Many of you may have seen the news release about K.E.Y. (Keystone Empowers You).The goal of the KEY Collaborative is to increase access to physical activity and healthy foods leading to a Keystone School District community where the healthy choice is the easiest choice for seniors, school-aged children, parents, adults, and individuals who work for a Keystone community employer.

While it references the Keystone School District, itís only connection is that it is using the school district to define the geographical area that the collaboration entails.

Some of the projects that stem from KEY, that you might notice, will be healthier choices at the concession stands and improvements to the Penfield walking trail at the recreation park.

†† Reflective Address Signs


These signs are available to residents at no charge and make it much easier for emergency personnel to locate your home.If you would like one, contact any of your trustees, The South Lorain County Ambulance District, or The Wellington Fire Department.

Pass this information on to anyone within the township who needs one of these signs.


†† Jones Road Bridge


The Jones Road bridge over the Black River was scheduled to be replaced mid-summer of next year.The county engineers did their annual inspection and found that the bridge had gotten worse than expected, they therefore closed it until it can be replaced.

It will still not be replaced until next year, but with some luck, it might be moved up to late winter or early spring.
