TOWN OF CIRCLEVILLE MINUTES
January 13, 2021
The regular meeting of the Circleville Town Council was called to order at 6:02 PM by Mayor Koby Willis. Council Members attending were: Kristi Westwood, and Kirk Fullmer, and Shirl Fox. Shane Robinson was excused. Mekeisia Westwood, Town Clerk was also in attendance.
Public attendees were: Rex Waddington, Roxie Beus, John Hanna, Agnes Rogers, Paul Foster, Kelly Chappell and Tom Crockett.
Mayor Willis led the pledge and then offered the prayer to open the proceedings. Kristi made a motion to approve the minutes from the December 10, 2020 meeting. Shirl seconded, and the motion passed unanimously.
John Hanna was first on the agenda. He was wanting to do a long-term lease of the Circleville Community Center to install video games for kids and billiards for grown-ups. It was discussed about different options that could be done. The Community Center is rented out a couple of times every week. They discussed the use of the Old Town Building. The Town Board decided that with all the different things the building is used for they didn’t feel it was the right location. They would like to see it in town, but maybe in a different building.
Next, Tom Crockett was wanting a site permit for a family rec center behind their current house. Shirl made the motion to approve the site permit. Kristi seconded, and the motion passed unanimously.
Roxie Beus requested a business license for Roxie’s Hometown Quilt and Boutique. Kirk made a motion, and Shirl seconded. The motion passed unanimously.
Kelly Chappell was here presenting where we are on bids for the Circleville Town Park. Paul Foster was here to discuss the playground equipment. The Board would like to open up bids as soon as possible.
Kelly discussed the water line and water tank repair. The Division of Drinking Water needs to approve the repair of the water line. That should be done in the next couple of weeks. The Water Master Plan is in the works. Kelly has been up to Wade’s Canyon and the Cottonwood springs to meter the water flow.
Piute County School District has received an outdoor recreation grant. The grant was not enough to cover the restrooms, concession stand, and storage shed at the pavilion. The grant still needs to be spent. Kelly offered to help with the building of just a restroom.
The Circleville Town Goals were discussed next. The Board reviewed the goals from 2020. They feel good about the completion of some of those goals. The unfinished goals were moved to goals for 2021.
The new town website is up and running. The Town Board is pleased with how it looks and works. Go visit circlevilleutah.org to check it out.
The Mayor called on those not on the agenda. There were none.
The Mayor opened the floor to the Departments:
Maintenance: Troy is looking into a Cross Connection and Backflow 101 training on March 1-5 in St. George. Circleville Town has been paying Troy to read the water meters. He mentioned that Danielle Karback has been doing the meter reading for the last year. The Town Board agreed to pay Danielle to continue reading the water meters. She has been doing it since last summer and has done a good job at it.
Parks & Recreation: The Town Board would like to thank Kristi for her work on keeping the tradition of Santa Claus coming to town during the COVID19 pandemic.
The bills and budget variance reports were presented and reviewed by the council. Shirl made a motion to approve the bills and budget variance reports and adjourn; Kristi seconded, and the motion passed unanimously. The meeting was adjourned at 8:34 PM.
