Circleville Council had a light workload Tuesday evening, with no legislation.
But they were also coming back from their annual retreat, where they met from 8am to 3pm Saturday at a public location.
Council president David Crawford said they looked at their long-term goals, how to work better together, and how to work smarter with the funds they have.
He says they have been doing this beginning-of-the-year retreat for several years, which gives them goals and strategies for the next 12 months. Then, they review them, and start over in the new year.
Council then went into a "committee of the whole" meeting where they began talking in executive session about changing the ownership structure of Berger Hospital - after voters approved releasing it from being publicly managed, to a nonprofit.
