The results of a performance audit for the city of
Some of the bigger ticket recommendations from the performance audit for Napoleon included these areas:
Outsourcing dispatch at the police department, to the local sheriff’s department would save about $335,000 each year.
Reducing the dispatch staff at the police department by 2 would save an additional $91,000 annually.
Discontinuing operation of the municipal golf course in Napoleon would save $77,000 each year.
Another $50,000-plus would be saved by outsourcing all or a portion of the income tax operations for the city.
And outsourcing the management of the swimming pool and cemetery mowing, burial and maintenance would save another $71,800 annually.
A number of other recommendations for savings in Napoleon pertained to the zoning department, collective bargaining agreements, and reductions in recreation programs that do not generate funds.
Napoleon city council will be discussing these recommendations in the months ahead; and likely looking for input from the public before making any moves.
