NAPOLEON, OH (Toledo News Now) -

The City of Napoleon is going over the results of a recent performance audit, and is looking to make cuts to save money.

According to City Manager Jon Bisher, the audit report showed that the city's 911 dispatch center is one of their biggest expenses.

City leaders are now faced with a tough choice: Should they continue funding it, or have calls go through the sheriff's office or county dispatch?

Going through the county could save the city hundreds of thousands of dollars per year.

"Those are really hard decisions that council has to make," Bisher said. "But they will take input from the public and that's how we'll use this performance audit, and move forward and see if there's some efficiencies and ways to save money."

Another way the city may be able to save money is by shutting down the golf course.

Options would be discussed at a council meeting Friday night.
