The regular meeting of the Circleville Town Council was called to order at 6:02PM by Mayor Cordell Pearson. Council Members attending were: Shane Robinson, Stacie Gass, Kristi Westwood, and Shirl Fox. Mekeisia Westwood, Town Clerk was also in attendance.

Public attendees were: Diana Richardson, Josh Richardson, Mark Cannon, Ricki Cannon, and Rex Waddington.  

Mayor Pearson led the pledge and Stacie offered the prayer to open the proceedings.  Kristi made a motion to approve the minutes from the October 13, 2022 meeting.  Stacie seconded, and the motion passed unanimously.

Mark Cannon was in attendance. He proposed to donate a piece of land on the north end of Circleville. This piece would be perfect for a Welcome to Circleville sign.  He would trade the property for a 1-inch water meter.  Shirl made a motion to approve the trade.  Shane seconded, and the motion passed unanimously.

Diana Richardson is wanting to build a small dwelling behind her house.  Circleville Town does not have any ordinances prohibiting an accessory dwelling unit. Stacie made a motion to approve the site permit with a new water meter for the dwelling.  Shirl seconded.  The motion passed unanimously.

Next, Tom Crockett was wanting a site permit.  He wants to build a carport.  It was discussed that the project has already been started.  The project permit application states that if the construction starts before the permit is obtained there is a $50 fee.  Shirl made a motion to approve the site permit with the stipulation that the $50 is paid.  Shane seconded, and the motion passed unanimously.  

The mayor called on those not on the agenda.

Ricki and Mark were also asking for a site permit and a business license.  There is a Rural Opportunity Community Grant available.  It is a grant for economic development.  Circleville Town would apply for the grant and then can designate it for a private entity.  This would have to be approved through the Planning and Zoning community and then brought to the Circleville Town Board.  The Planning and Zoning Commission will be meeting to discuss this.  

Street signs were discussed next. UCI Sign Shop will do the signs.  The Board looked at the order form to figure out what type of signs needed to be ordered.  

Michael Naser was in attendance discussing the water grant.  The well is being prepared to be bid out.  

There is a T-Mobile Hometown Grant available.  It can be used in community spaces.  It was discussed that it should be used at the new park, possibly for the cost of installing a skate park and a pickle ball court.

The Mayor opened the floor to the Departments.

Roads Department: The drainages will be scraped in the spring.  

Planning and Zoning/Cemetery:  The cemetery fence will resume in the spring when it warms up.  

Parks & Recreation/Economic Development:  The Thanksgiving Dinner is on Monday, November 14.  Santa will be coming to Circleville on December 17, 2022.  He will be riding around on the fire truck.

The bills and budget variance reports were presented and reviewed by the council. Stacie made a motion to approve the bills and budget variance reports and adjourn;  Shirl seconded, and the motion passed unanimously.  The meeting was adjourned at 7:29PM.
