Residents on West Maumee in Napoleon will likely see plenty of construction work for the rest of this year, after city council approved the plans and specs for the south side interceptor sewer project. That action took place at the Monday meeting of Napoleon Council, in a project estimated at close to $800,000. Sewers need to be replaced in yards behind those living along the river on West Maumee, between Perry and Daggett Streets. Also affected will be residents on the south side of Maumee. A grant from the state of Ohio will help pay for approximately 40% of the project cost.
Residents on Indiana Avenue again approached Napoleon Council about the issue of parking on the street, and impact on mail deliveries. It now looks like Napoleon Council will send that matter to the Safety and Human Resources Committee, to determine the best way to resolve the situation. City Staff will have input on this issue.
Napoleon Council talked about their plans for the MWT subdivision, which is the former Midwest Wood Trim parcel that will be developed soon. There has been interest shown by companies looking to buy property.

Napoleon Council approved a resolution that will allow defendants in Municipal Court to pay fines through credit card on-line. That measure passed by emergency and suspension of the rules, which means it will go into effect when signed.
And Napoleon Council passed the ordinance affecting employee discounts at the golf course and swimming pool. The Monday action will keep the discount for the pool; but end it at the golf course, except for those working at the course. That legislation was approved on first reading.
