Two Xenia City Staffing Charter Amendment measures were on the November 2, 2010 ballot in the city of Xenia, which is in Greene County.

The first proposed charter amendment sought to amend the charter so that there will have to be by law a minimum amount of fire and police officers employed by the city. City officials were against this measure because there was no way to fund the additionsl officers which would be required if this had been approved.
