Circleville Council Takes Next Step in Combining Dispatching

With an agenda that lacked legislation, Circleville Council worked on other issues Tuesday evening. One was whether to merge with the county's dispatching center, which has been an extended discussion.

.

Council president David Crawford explained that council established a committee of two to join the administration to talk things over with the county commissioners. He thinks it's a good next step after a year and a half.

.

Two council members will not be running for re-election, so next year's council will be less familiar with the issue - so Crawford said it would be good to finish by the end of the year.

.

The Committee of the whole also recommended to sell the Everts School gym wing to the Pickaway Progress Partnership for $100, which will then work it out with the current planners for the proposed cultural center.

.

And last session, council reconciled themselves over unexpected alterations to the safety forces levy, and gave it a five-year sunset clause before making sure it would be on the fall ballot.
