(New Castle Co., DE) -- The New Castle Council is not supporting County Executive Matt Meyer's proposed budget. The nearly 300-million-dollar spending plan for 2019 was shot down in a vote yesterday. The council did pass a 12 percent sewer rate hike, which goes into effect July 1st. At a special meeting next Tuesday, members are expected to propose a seven-point-five percent property tax hike instead of Meyer's 15 percent increase.
