Naples City Council Overview

Naples City Council met last week wrapping up business for 2016. Everything came back great on the end of year audit, shares Naples City Manager Joshua Bake. “No deficiencies were found and the audit stated that the City is healthy. This is great news considering the downturn in the economy but we’ve been focused on reducing the budget and maintaining really well.” Another positive from the meeting was an agreement with UDOT that will reimburse Naples City for work done several years ago with the street lighting program in the City. “We had new lights put on Highway 40 and applied for federal money to get reimbursed for that several years ago. UDOT has been amazing helping us to get state reimbursement for that as an exchange of state money for federal money.” Naples City has been reimbursed approximately $646,000 dollars thanks to UDOT’s help. Finally, City Council awarded full time employees of Naples City a Christmas bonus of $300 dollars. Employees who work less than full time will receive a prorated bonus based on their time.
