The second reading on the 2018 budget for Napoleon was approved by city council Monday night.  The general fund expenditures are anticipated at about 6.7 million dollars, compared to 6.6 million for 2017.  But actual expenditures for this year will likely be much lower, at 6.1 million, due to cancellation of a project.                    Napoleon Council took care of some compensation action Monday, offering 3% pay increases to the law director and city manager, along with a 1.5% hike for the finance director.

Non bargaining city employees were approved for a 2% wage increase for 2018.             Napoleon City Council approved a resolution to work with ODOT for funding improvements on Industrial Drive next year, including some water and sewer upgrades.  The total project is over 3 million dollars, with the grant supplying about 2 million of the cost.

And Napoleon Council passed the first reading on a resolution to contract with the village of Florida to provide rescue service next year.  The second reading will wait until after Florida Council considers the proposal on December 18th.
