County Executive Statement on Governor’s Recommended Fiscal Year 2018 Budget

New Castle, DE – New Castle County Executive Matthew Meyer issued the following statement following today’s release of the Governor’s recommended Fiscal Year 2018 State budget:

“The State faces unique fiscal challenges, and the Governor's recommended budget is a starting point to address the projected gap between State revenues and expenditures. My team and I have begun to evaluate the New Castle County budget for next year, and we are already facing the challenge of meeting our own cost drivers. Keeping our residents safe is among the most important commitments we make to citizens, and 94% of our real estate transfer tax revenues are used to fund police, paramedic, 911 and fire department operations. We must all work collaboratively to ensure that the State budget is developed in a way that is fair to the taxpayers of all counties and does not cut into vital public safety operations that we all expect and deserve. We look forward to having an open dialogue with the Carney Administration and the General Assembly to discuss these pressing fiscal issues to ensure that the most important public services are preserved this coming year and into the future.”
