City Council accepts donations for smoke detectors and a police dog
Safety-Service chair Dustin Proehl saw two ordinances passed to accept $500 donations each, both from the Chillicothe-Ross Community Foundation.
One will help allow the fire department to give away more smoke detectors, making up for some lost funds from state and federal sources.
The other donation will go towards the police dog. Proehl asked to pass them both on first reading because they were money to be accepted.

Finance Chair Jeremy Siberell saw an ordinance pass to allow the city courts to spend more of their own funds on the new court building.
That's $400,000 towards additional building costs, plus $60,000 from a technology fund for computers. None of this comes from the city's general fund.
Siberell also introduced an ordinance to reissue the bond for the Transit Facility with a $100,000 payment to hopefully get a better finance rate.
