The first resolution before the council, which got unanimous approval was a 56-month contract with city’s police union, Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 42.
Under the agreement, officers will receive a three percent raise for time worked between May through December of last year, a 2.75 percent raise this year and two percent raises the following three years, a deal which took more than four years to draft.
“We’re working with them as a team so the process was very long and very forthright,” said Naperville City Councilman, John Krummen.
The new contract will benefit about 130 Naperville police officers.
Also getting a boost in their budget is the city’s Regional Household Hazardous waste facility.
Council passed an intergovernmental agreement with DuPage County that will give the facility an extra $155,000 to help properly dispose of dangerous materials.
“A resident can bring any material, be it oil, any material they believe is a hazard and bring it over to our specially trained fireman who can then take it out of their vehicle and dispose of it properly,” said Dick Dublinksi, Director of Public Works with the City of Naperville.
The facility will accept materials on Saturdays and Sundays but still will not accept electronics.
One last bit of business from the meeting comes as a reminder- motorcycle parking in downtown Naperville is seasonal, so spaces can be used by cars and other vehicles in the winter to help clear up parking congestion.
