The budget is set for 2018 in the city of Napoleon. City Council passed the third and final reading on the spending plan, which tops 62 million dollars for next year. That figure covers all spending from buying electric power, to paying life guards at the pool, to buying fertilizer for the golf course, and asphalt to patch pot-holes. Napoleon Council also committed $33,000 to help pay for economic development in Henry County for next year, in quarterly installments. Council also had to write-off over $215,000 in uncollectible bills and taxes, mainly due to residents moving out of the city. But their names are being kept in a file, should they return. The city will spend about $4,000 for a new wooden fence to decorate along the Napoleon city building parking lot on west Riverview. The city plans to close the street that comes out onto Riverview adjacent to the parking lot. The change-order for over $49,000 on the water treatment plan project will help pay for more security in doors. But it will also eliminate the need for fencing around the perimeter. And Napoleon Councilmen Joe Bialorucki and Jeff Comadoll were named to the firefighter and police officer dependents fund boards.
