NAPOLEON COUNCIL APPROVES LEVELIZATION PLAN FOR ELECTRIC RATES

 

Residents in Napoleon should see less peaks and valleys in electric rates over the next three years, after Napoleon Council approved a rate levelization program, during their Monday night meeting.   That measure passed by emergency and suspension of the rules, and will cover the years 2014 through 2016.  Napoleon was expecting lower electric rates the first year; but big increases in years 2015 and 16.  But this levelization plan should keep electric bills on a more even-keel during the three years.

                                    Napoleon Council approved the bid to Gerken Paving for improvements to the parking lot off West Main Street, at a cost of about $47,500.   That’s about $8,000 below the engineer’s estimated cost.

                        Another bid was awarded to the Zimmerman company, to tackle the city’s striping project for streets.  That cost is just under $63,000.

                                    Napoleon Council went into executive session to discuss employment of personnel with the law director; but no action was taken.
