You’ll probably see more trucks from the Vern Nagel Construction Company in Napoleon over the rest of 2013.   Napoleon city council approved two infrastructure projects during their Monday meeting, award both to the Nagel Company, as the lowest and best bids available.   The bid for the Kennilworth sewer project was for about $297,000; and a waterline project on Hudson Street was approved at just over $78,000.

                        Napoleon Council also approved specs for two other projects during the Monday session.  A street striping project is estimated at $85,000, and some improvements to the West Main Street parking lot are estimated at $55,000.   Both of those projects should be going out to bid soon.

                        There was nothing new on the negotiations regarding the move of Napoleon Police Dispatch services to the Henry County Sheriff’s office.   The dialogue on that issue is still underway.

Napoleon Council approved a resolution to move forward with an Efficiency Smart Rebate Agreement for electric customers.   Another resolution authorizes the city manager to spend over $25,000 for two vertical pumps.

                        And the Napoleon city council accepted recommendations from the health care cost committee for next year, which will include an option for a health savings account.   Premiums are likely to increase by approximately 10%.
