Public attending were: Lonnie and Sharon Kiser, Paul and Teresa Morgan, Kelly Chappell, and Milton Santos.
Mayor Willis led the pledge and then Kirk offered the prayer to open the proceedings. Kirk made a motion to approve the minutes from the July 16, 2020 meeting. Shirl seconded, and the motion passed unanimously.
First on the agenda was Judy Bleak requesting a site permit. She is wanting to build a home at 40 W 470 N. Kristi made a motion to approve the site permit. Shirl seconded, and the motion passed unanimously.
Dan Springer was next on the agenda. He is also requesting a site permit. He is wanting to put an addition on his existing home. Shirl made the motion to approve the permit. Kirk seconded. The motion passed unanimously.
Paul and Teresa Morgan were next on the agenda. They are considering putting a campground out by Butch Cassidy’s boyhood home. They came to ask the Town Board about water for their project. The size of the line required was discussed. Through their research they have found they are required to have an 8 inch line. The Board discussed if the water line could be extended past the county line. The Town is willing to sell water for the project, but the cost of extending the line will need to be discussed more when actual numbers are known. Paul and Teresa are going to continue to work on the project, and they will keep in touch with the Town.

The Mayor called on those not on the agenda. There were none.
The Circleville Town Park Project was discussed next. The Board met at the site of the future park at 6:00 to walk through and decided how everything would be situated. They decided that they would leave a road on the north side of the park through the block. There will be a playground, pavilion, pickle-ball courts, horseshoe pits, a walking path, and a maintenance shed behind the existing firehouse. The funding meeting for CIB will be held October 1, 2020. The town will start collecting bids after that meeting.
The progress of the 2020 goals were discussed. Goal #1 was to clean up the town dump and that has been accomplished. The cemetery fence was another goal that was discussed. There is almost $7,000 in the cemetery fence fund. The board is going to talk some more about what they want for the fence. The Main Street Project was discussed next. The Town Board would like to put some planters in the park strips. Kristi is going to look into options for planters. One of the goals was to establish a Planning Committee. If you are interested in helping with the Planning Committee, please contact Mekeisia Westwood or Mayor Willis.
A Town Marshal was discussed next. Shirl would like to see one brought back to help enforce the Town laws and codes. It was discussed if the Town would have to send them to Post Academy or if there were other options. This discussion was tabled for another time.
