July 6, 2015  - The new fire training center, tours of the five-story tower, a live training exercise at the facility as well as updates from the fire chief and police chief, along with a display of equipment, will highlight the Quarterly Mayor's Coffee this Wednesday, July 8, at its location on West Green Street, south of the Donaldson Company in southwest Chillicothe. The Quarterly Coffee will begin at 10 a.m. and conclude by 11 a.m. The public, as well as school students, are invited to attend to see the new training center which officially opened late last fall and to view the new equipment and hear the department heads speak about their departments and take questions from those in attendance. The speakers Wednesday will be Fire Chief and Department of Emergency Management Director Darrell Wright and Chief of Police Rick Knouse. Refreshments of cookies, doughnuts, lemonade and iced tea will be provided. Because of the event being held outdoors as well as the scheduled training center exercise, if there is rain, it will be held at the same time on Thursday.

The Mayor's Quarterly Coffee was established in 2013 and is held each quarter at city facilities and/or public meeting places. The coffees are held the second Wednesday of each quarter beginning at 10 a.m. and normally concluding by 11 a.m. The events feature department heads and other city personnel as well as special guests of other city associated offices such as tourism and economic development. Refreshments are provided. The event allows for people to learn more about their city and to ask questions of interest.


The Quarterly Mayor's Coffee consists of a series of four Coffee events to be held at various city and public locations throughout the city. The kick-off event for 2015 was Wednesday, January 14, 2015, at the community room of the Chillicothe Municipal Utilities at 10 a.m. Guest speakers were Jim Gillian, general manager of CMU, who discussed some of the major events of the past year for all of the departments and commented on agenda items planned for 2015. Also speaking was City Administrator Ike Holland who recapped some of the events of the past year and talked about the "wish list" of city projects for the coming year.
