Four new officials joined the city sa Circleville Council set the stage for 2012.
After many family members witnessed the swearing-in by Judge Gary Dumm before the session, new members Tito Duran and Tom Spring joined as at-large councilmen.
New mayor Don McIlroy took his seat, much to the relief of Council President David Crawford...who had filled it for more than half of 2011, after Mayor Chuck Taylor's heart condition.
Aside from re-appointing the council clerk, now with an assistant, the only major action was acknowledging Mayor McIlroy's appointment of John Ankrom as the new public service director...the fifth in about four years.
