Napoleon Talks Water Charges

At Mon­day evening’s Napoleon City Coun­cil meet­ing, an ordi­nance that would increase bulk water rates over a three-year period was dis­cussed.

The Cres­cent News reports that, under the cur­rent rate, cus­tomers are charged $7.71 per 1,000 gal­lons of water. If the pro­posed ordi­nance is approved, that rate would increase to $7.94 in 2014, $8.18 in 2015 and $8.43 in 2016.

The ordi­nance would also estab­lish test­ing fees. Coun­cil approved the ordi­nance on its first read­ing.

The News also reports that Napoleon Coun­cil approved a num­ber of leg­isla­tive items under sus­pen­sion, includ­ing an ordi­nance estab­lish­ing a zon­ing clas­si­fi­ca­tion for around 55 acres of land for the Napoleon Area Schools ele­men­tary school and a res­o­lu­tion to enter into a con­tract with the Ohio Depart­ment of Trans­porta­tion to pur­chase salt.
