In addition to passing ordinances for the annual housing assistance grants...and correcting an abandoned alley's survey...Council heard thoughts about improving city services.
Council member Tom Spring reflected on a Columbus Dispatch article on fees and city services. He said Circleville has low fees, but also lacks services that some Columbus suburban cities have.
For example, he said the village of Canal Winchester became a city last year but has had a city planner and code enforcement for years, unlike Circleville.
Spring says the city might want to reconsider its fee and funding structures to protect its quality of life, property values, and services.

And, Council President David Crawford outlined a letter from Municipal Judge Dumm wanting to expand his facility.
He said the 30-year-old city building on East Franklin Street may have the additional space for records storage that could be created in its third floor.
