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.
