Why did Paul have Timothy get circumcised?

Wasn't the very reason Paul and Barnabas went to Jerusalem to discuss and clarify that circumcision was not required (Acts 15:1-11)?

Acts 16:3

ESV - 3 Paul wanted Timothy to accompany him, and he took him and circumcised him because of the Jews who were in those places, for they all knew that his father was a Greek.
