NAPLES, FL - DECEMBER 9, 2014: After years of tight budgets, government spending is finally increasing at all levels. In Naples, the budget has a surplus for one of the first years since the recession allowing the city to hire two part-time pelican watchers who will help untangle the birds from fishing lines along the pier, as well as to start building a massive new $15-million park.
