New Castle Council Rejects Budget Proposal

(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.
