gives details of budget
Cathy May, Contributing Writer
A public hearing was held on the 2008 budget at the August meeting
of the Napoleon Town Board. The total budget is $46,085. That is
broken down into several funds: General Fund, $29,880; local roads
and streets, $2,700; motor vehicle highway, $10,500 and EDIT $3,005.
No one from the public appeared for the hearing.
In other business, Earl King approached the members of the town
board about having the alley vacated between Monroe and Jackson
streets. King is making an offer on a house on Monroe Street and
would like to add a sunroom to the house.
The board had agreed several years ago to the same request from
another homeowner and believes the alley may have already been vacated.
They will check with Attorney Larry Eaton on the matter. King is
moving to Napoleon to be nearer the Honda plant in Greensburg where
he will start work soon.
The board asked Rod Eaton to inspect the establishments in town
that are required to have grease traps. There was discussion about
some of the areas in town that Eaton is mowing but does not belong
to the town. The board told him to continue mowing the areas because
it does make the town look better. The new flag pole at the Napoleon
Senior Center has now been installed.
All three town board members, Tim Brancamp, Bill Vankirk, and Gerry
Linarducci were present. Clerk Treasurer Karen Rohlfing was also
present to advise the board. The next regular meeting of the Napoleon
Town Board is scheduled for September 12 at 7:00 p.m. at the Napoleon
