Circleville Council had a short session while the "greatest free show on earth" was gearing up outside.
Circleville Police may have two new cruisers by year's end. Barry Keller saw that ordinance pass as the Safety chair, and said council tries to let the department get two new vehicles each year.
Keller said that should take a little time, with considering the lowest and best bids from local dealers as well as a state program.

Mayor Don McIlroy gave an update on the demolition program funded by a federal lawsuit on predatory mortgages.
He said 12 are down, and 12 more should be demolished starting next week. Most have not been lived in for 10-20 years.
Will there be more done away with? Mayor McIlroy hopes so, since the city has enough to demolish 15 more.
The process involves getting permission from the owners...as well as all their taxes paid up.
