NAPOLEON COUNCIL WORKS ON BUDGET

It looks like a tight budget is facing the city of Napoleon heading toward 2019.   Council went-over revenue projections Monday, estimating conservatively at 4.1 million dollars to work with next year.  That’s about $100,000 below last year’s figure.   But Napoleon Council is hoping to put aside money to beef-up their rainy day fund for emergencies at $250,000 for 2019.               The issue of income tax refunds paybacks will take-up some of the carryover balance, with money going out in January to businesses. 

          Napoleon Council also passed a first reading on the resolution to place a property tax on the ballot in May, to raise funds to construct a new swimming pool facility on Glenwood Avenue. 

And the city of Napoleon will be looking for a new person to oversee finances.   Greg Heath will be retiring in the near future after 25 years as finance director in Napoleon, and over 40 years overall in government finance.
